Framework for Future Delivery of Water Services

Register for HR One-to-One

The Uisce Éireann HR One-to-Ones will commence from early June. We are now inviting all staff, who have not yet registered, to submit a Request for Information on transferring to Uisce Éireann. Please click on the below link which will guide you to the page. If you have already registered, you will be contacted by Uisce Éireann to schedule an appointment.

All staff have the option to submit a request for further information on transferring to Uisce Éireann and we invite interested staff, who have not yet done so, to register online or call 01 237 2966. If you have already registered for a one-to-one meeting, you will be contacted by Uisce Éireann to arrange an appointment.

How the HR One to One meeting will work

These meetings are being held locally and virtually via Zoom in each Local Authority area. Once you submit your Request for Information, we send you an email requesting you to compile your Details of Employment with the Local Authority, i.e. your current salary, grade, overtime, allowances, and all existing agreements in place with your employer. Only information provided by you will be used for the discussion.

We will be able to provide a comparison between the Uisce Éireann pay model and the mirrored LA pay model based on the information you supply. An Uisce Éireann HR representative will then go through all your information with you and confirm the guarantees in relation to your existing terms and conditions, as well as answer any individual questions you may have in relation to transferring to Uisce Éireann.

Following on from this meeting, you can confirm your intention to transfer to Uisce Éireann and we will follow up with formal contract information. You can also decide not to join at this time and consider all your options further before deciding to transfer later. All staff in water services will have the option to join Uisce Éireann up to the end of 2026.

HR One to One Meeting Explained

Important information to note:

The Uisce Éireann HR One-to-Ones will commence from early June and can take place in-person or via Zoom, depending on the preference of Local Authority Water Services staff. ‘In-person’ clinics will take place within each Local Authority area on a phased basis. All clinics are arranged by Uisce Éireann HR personnel, who will schedule individual appointments with Local Authority Water Services staff following their registration of their interest in discussing the voluntarily transfer process, and all registrations will be treated in the utmost confidence.


Uisce Éireann is now recruiting for a number of new vacancies which will offer secure employment in a growing and dynamic sector and exciting career progression opportunities. Please click on the link below for further information.
