Current Vacancies


We are transforming the world to sustainability. Can you help lead the change?

IEMA is the worldwide alliance of environment and sustainability professionals who, as a combined force, influence some of the world’s largest companies and biggest economies to be more environmentally, socially and commercially sustainable.

We are already the largest environment and sustainability body in the world, with 14,500 members in over 100 countries, and right now we are powering up to optimise our capability and influence across the globe. That means we need the right people on board, at every level.

We are looking for a new Chair of the IEMA Board to provide direction and guidance at a truly strategic level. This vacancy presents an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and visionary professional who has previous Board level experience and now wants to play a part in shaping a sustainable future. Does this sound like you?

The Chair will lead the Board to deliver a clear and continuous strategic direction for the Institute as we grow in size and influence. This means holding the Board and Executive Team to account for the Institute’s ambitious vision, providing strong leadership to the Board of Directors, and supporting, championing and challenging the Executive Team. If you are the successful candidate, you will ultimately act as an international ambassador for IEMA alongside the Chief Executive.
