Our team is passionate and driven and committed to the work we do.

We offer a range of benefits to support our employees in improving their wellbeing, maintaining a healthy work-life balance and developing their potential.

We want our employees to feel valued and engaged so that every employee can contribute to WaterAid’s ambitious strategy and mission to the best of his/ her potential.


WaterAid India promotes a culture of continuous learning and provides you the opportunity to plan your personal and professional growth through structured learning interventions. Our learning and development programs are thoughtfully designed to enable employees to enhance their skills and reach their full potential.

Work life balance

We respect the fact that the passion you bring to work, naturally extends to your personal life as well. At WaterAid India, we believe in integrating the two in a way that it enables a happy and productive lifestyle.

We encourage our people to meet their work commitments while balancing their personal responsibilities. We bring in flexible work arrangements and generous leave provisions to support the needs of employees with family responsibilities and other commitments.

Accidental and medical insurance

We support our employees by providing life and medical insurance covers for self and family.
