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.

Impact and Society – Opportunities to engage

Through the IET’s Policy and Insight activity, we seek to inspire technology innovation, develop best practice, provide robust, impartial information to key stakeholders, and influence government policy.

Interested in becoming a Professional Registration Advisor?

“Being a PRA brings a different set of skills to my ordinary Engineering work. I find it fulfilling to add back to my chosen profession and to assist with the professionalisation of the workforce. It is deeply satisfying to know that what you have done is helping someone else get registered – which in itself is rewarding and gives a sense of personal achievement.
