Recruitment campaigns

IET volunteering opportunities

We offer a wide variety of volunteering opportunities, which deliver vital services such as professional registration, mentoring and accreditation, in addition to inspiring young people into the profession, sharing knowledge through communities, contributing to publishing, building good governance, educating the next generation and applying expertise to influence stakeholders and government. You can explore our volunteer roles and apply any time.

Recruitment campaigns

We run volunteer recruitment campaigns if a particular area of volunteering has an increased requirement, and these are included in the ‘Vacancies’ board below.

Other organisations

We are also keen to promote volunteering opportunities from organisations outside of the IET, which may be of interest to our members and within the remit of our vision and mission.

If you have a volunteer opportunity that you would like to see advertised on our ‘Vacancies’ board please email volunteer@theiet.org for assistance.

Are you motivated by securing the future of the engineering and technology profession?

There are many ways you can support the Professional Registration application process, where you may be offering reassurance and specialist advice to applicants, assessing a submission or conducting an interview.

You will learn new skills and enhance existing ones, like teamwork and communication, while developing a network of professionals from different sectors and communities.

Could you be a Professional Registration Advisor, Professional Review Interviewer, or Assessor?  Please complete our Registration and Standards Application Form and return to rssu@theiet.org

Our Communities are currently recruiting

Our Communities put on a range of activities that shape inspiring content, highlight the latest news and advances in engineering and technology, and influence key audiences.

By helping to organise and run these activities you can develop your team-working, time management, budgeting, event planning, problem-solving, leadership, communication, organisation, adaptability, patience, participation in meetings and presenting.

Sound like something you would like to do? 

Are you an Academic or Industrialist with experience in aerospace, mechanical, bioengineering or cyber security?

Could you be an Accreditor, helping to maintain and improve the quality of engineering higher education in the UK and internationally? Perhaps you have experience of the education system in the Middle East, or are able to travel to China or India.  Full training will be provided.

Did someone support and inspire you to become who you are today?
