We are now offering the IET Volunteer induction in a variety of formats, why not come along and join us…

(If you are not already volunteering, please take a look around our ‘Get Involved’ pages to see how you can join the team.)

Induction Webinar

The Volunteer Induction Webinar is one hour in duration and is intended to provide information about the Institution in the broadest sense, including:

• Taking a look at who our volunteers are and where their activities are taking place around the world.
• How the strategy is developed and what is the current focus.
• How the IET delivers its vision & mission, and how this is paid for.
• Sharing information on the support and resources available to you.
• How we keep you informed and how you can share your news with IET members.
• Q&A session.

Discovery Day Delegates at the Induction Day outside Michael Faraday House, Stevenage

The Discovery Day is held in the IET offices at Michael Faraday House in Stevenage - the place where most of the central and operational functions are located.  The day includes the content from the webinar (see above), accompanied by an extended lunch session to provide delegates with the opportunity to network, meet the staff team supporting their role, join a tour of Michael Faraday House and receive demonstrations on tools and resources (eg: Marketing Toolkit, Career Manager, Engineering Communities and the Volunteer Gateway website).

If you are already volunteering with the IET and are interested in attending our next Volunteer Discovery Day, please register here (opens new window) for Friday 24 November 2017.

(We currently offer reimbursement of travel expenses within the United Kingdom - please contact volunteer@theiet.org for further clarification.)


"Very many thanks for the instructive, informative and inspiring day!

Instructive because we team-up;

Informative as we saw and 'touched' the 'engine' of the Institution;

Inspiring because we realise- even more - how many things are possible and the mutual benefit (i.e. value added) of the 'One Team' approach."

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate your team in organising such a great program for volunteers to get to know the operation and structure of the IET. This will definitely inspire and inform the volunteers and give a sense of belonging to the IET family.”
