About Rising Stars
The Institute of Water is dedicated to supporting the careers of people working in the UK water utility sector and the Rising Stars programme is a key feature of our ongoing work to nurture rising talent in the water sector.
This tailor-made programme was originally developed in partnership with the industry magazine company, Utility Week, to celebrate and reward Institute of Water members who have demonstrated both the potential and an appetite to progress in the water industry. The programme is now stand-alone and sits solely within the Institute of Water.
Through an application process each year, we choose eight Institute of Water members who have shown both the potential and an appetite to progress within the water industry.
Rising Stars brings together a collection of unique opportunities, designed to develop the skills and professional excellence of new industry talent and particularly focuses on providing professional development in the skills areas that are not traditionally tackled or made available to individuals.
“This programme has enabled me to explore parts of the industry I’d otherwise never get the chance to and those experiences are invaluable for my CPD.”
Fionn Boyle, Optimisation Project Engineer, Anglian Water, 2018 Rising Star
