Our Members are able to draw on the knowledge and experience of 135 Board Members who give their time freely to serve you, as custodians of our wonderful lowland environment. We collectively employ 65 people and each Member Board, through the WMA, provides a 24/7 flood response, surface water drainage and water level management service, primarily for the benefit of all those living and working in our Drainage Districts.

Management Structure

Each Member Board has its own business unit, which consists of a healthy mix of directly employed staff, consultants and contractors, and collaborative arrangements. The WMA organisation supports each Member Board’s business unit by providing them with administration and technical support services, and, operations delivery support in an emergency event. The way in which our Member Boards interface with the WMA can be viewed from each Board’s ‘Organisation’ webpage. The staff, their job roles and contact details are shown below, together with a summary table of the Annual Pay bands for all employees in the group:
