Volunteer induction

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.

Induction Day

Delegates at the Induction Day outside Michael Faraday House, Stevenage

We hold a Volunteer Induction Day once a year at Michael Faraday House in Stevenage.

The induction day includes the content from the webinar, 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 products (eg: Marketing Toolkit, Career Manager, Engineering Communities, Knowledge Packs, Volunteer Gateway).

If you are interested in attending our next Volunteer Induction Day, please speak to your staff contact or email volunteer@theiet.org for more information.

Presentations from our previous Induction Day can be found on our induction presentations web page (this page is locked down to volunteers only).


“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.”
