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.

IET 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.
