Volunteer roles map

Many of our roles offer the opportunity to develop new skills and abilities, giving you the chance to reach more senior roles as you progress.

Any volunteer role is rewarding and valued in the way it contributes to the delivery of the IETs charitable aims. Volunteering can also be personally rewarding through the sense of giving back to a valued profession, supporting and seeing others enjoy a successful engineering career, and in many other ways. It can also be a significant source of personal and professional development by providing opportunities to learn new skills, being exposed to the challenges of different activities and environments, and building an extensive network of colleagues.

Many people will commit to one volunteering role that they find especially rewarding, while others will transfer to new roles over time, or even take up multiple roles in parallel. This may be for many reasons, but is usually because competencies and knowledge gained in one role has opened doors to different ways to influence and contribute. It may also be because their expertise has been identified for a particular area of the Institution that is under development.

The image of the Volunteer Roles Map shows the current IET volunteer roles available, including those relating to governance on the Main Boards, Committees and Working Parties.
