Join us now to play a part in ensuring a high-performing and sustainable water sector in Scotland.

About us

As the economic regulator of publicly owned Scottish Water, we work to ensure that the industry is internationally admired for excellence and, through the investment it makes, is sustainable both today and for future generations.
It is an exciting time to join WICS and to be a part of the important work that we do for customers, communities and the wider environment. At WICS you would play a key role, ensuring Scotland’s sustainable future as we work collaboratively to transform the industry in the face of key challenges such as delivering net zero emissions by 2040.

We are an industry-leading organisation known internationally for introducing innovative ways to ensure customers play an increasingly active role in the industry.  We were also the first to introduce competition for business customers and the public sector into the retail water sector.

Exceptional careers that make a difference

Our people generate evidence-based solutions that help build a strong Scottish water sector, support more sustainable communities and protect the environment.

The nature of the work at the Commission is highly varied, has a genuine impact and makes a real difference. With wide-ranging and collaborative projects each day brings new challenges and opportunities to develop.

Our culture

We have adopted the principles of Ethical Based Regulation, which encourages honesty and transparency in all interactions between us as regulator, Scottish Water and other stakeholders.

As an organisation we are innovative, outward facing and flexible. This means that we, and those who work for us, are diverse thinkers who look for creative solutions, welcome ideas from outside, and encourage employees to take responsibility and to grow in areas that are of interest and where they can excel.

When you join WICS you will be treated as a unique and valuable team member. With a culture of mentoring and support, you will find the people here as invested in your career as you are.
