Moving on in the Environment?
This page is for those looking to progress in their careers or choose their next move.
A constantly improving profile as an environmental professional is essential for anyone wishing to progress within the environmental sector. IEMA recognises the importance of this and supports members to enable them to achieve their goals as they progress through their careers.
This site is able to help those wishing to move on in the environment, those who are pondering which path to choose or those simply wishing to take the next step in their career. The Roles and Responsibilites page illustrates the required knowledge that is expected for a number of positions.
To find out which IEMA membership level is most relevant to an individual's knowledge and experience, visit IEMA's Membership Planner. Remember, IEMA membership is often stated as a pre-requisite in many job adverts so becoming a member is a real boost to your CV!.
Incorporating current knowledge into other other areas of the environment is also important when looking to progress. Improving knowledge and skills in a new area can be achieved with Continuing Professional Development (CPD). IEMA organises a series of CPD workshops, a schedule of which can be viewed here: http://www.iema.net/iema_workshops.
This site has something for everyone, for those thinking of becoming self-employed, those looking to make a career change into the environment sector, and those looking to progress to a higher level. The Supporting Information section provides valuable tools and advice for all these scenarios.
