Following on from Professional Standards Committee (PSC) chair Shaun McCarthy article in November's Transform about the importance of rigorous standards and the role the committee plays, IEMA is delighted to confirm that it has two committee vacancies to fill, and is welcoming applicants from diverse backgrounds and with a broad range of skills.

IEMA is looking for committee members whose role will be to safeguard professional standards and provide expert advice, guidance and governance to the IEMA Board. The committee also ensures that the development and application of IEMA's professional standards, assessments and training are global, valid and fair.

IEMA's vision is to transform the world to sustainability, and it is particularly interested in applications from people from large businesses, government departments and other complex organisations. It particularly welcomes candidates from under-represented groups such as BAME, LGBT and those with disabilities, as well as young professionals.

In addition, candidates who have knowledge and experience in the application of social value and audit, as well as social and environmental law, are of interest.

Individuals should be competent professionals, ideally with some experience of professional or academic standards, who are interested in innovation and want to be instrumental in developing IEMA's professional standards to the next level of development.

To find out more about the vacancies and how to apply, please download the Candidate Information Pack at Alternatively, for a conversation with head of operations Sue Buxey regarding the vacancies, please contact her on 07934 349 679. The closing date for applications is 26 February 2020.
