What is WUN?

WUN – Womens Utilities Network was started to give women the skills and confidence they need to build lasting, fulfilling careers in the utility sector. Founded by a group of women who have themselves built successful careers in both energy and water, WUN seeks to help other women to build the right networks, get the right training and take control of their own work lives at whichever stage of their career they are at.

WUN is open to any woman working in the utilities space – from customer services, operational, metering and everything in between. The purpose is to create a network of support to help women develop their skills and career within the sector.

WUN runs events to connect women together and offers mentoring for those looking to build their careers and learn from other women who have already built successful careers in the sector. In the future we will be offering training, in partnership with other organisations in the sector

The Role

utilisation and sharing of interesting sector articles, knowledge and insight

Act as an advocate for WUN at events, online and where opportunity allows

• Ability to write informative and accurate industry pieces

How much time will the role take?

As this role is voluntarily it would be preferable if advocates should be prepared to give

limit. There is an expectation that you will attend at least one in person WUN event and one
virtual WUN event.
