Following a successful pilot event in February 2011, a series of workshops specially designed for university students considering a career in the environment profession was rolled out in October and early November.

Five student-only events were held at the universities of Hertfordshire, Lancaster, Leeds, Southampton and Sunderland between 27 October and 9 November.

The events feature a welcome from IEMA’s CEO Jan Chmiel; top tips on how to get into an environment role from IEMA’s own graduate practitioner Richard Harada; and practical advice from recruitment and employment specialists.

Delegates receive copies of the IEMA environmental skills map, which provides a clear picture of the knowledge, skills and experience needed to progress in the environment profession at every stage. They also get a copy of the environmentalist.

IEMA would like to thank Mary Argyraki, Louise Ellis, Becky Gordon, Jane Newbold, Lisa Palframan and Simon Kemp at the partner universities for helping the planning and delivery of these events.
