Matthew Mason

Committee Member

I'm Matt and I'm entering the last couple months of my History and Politics degree at the University of Sheffield (though I'll be moving back to Solihull once I've finished).

I joined the IEMA after becoming of aware of the great work the organisation does during a voluntary role with Green Impact in my second year of uni. Wanting to get involved in the community and learn more about the challenges and solutions related to sustainability, I bought a student membership.

I'd love to undertake a corporate graduate role in sustainability but realised, through application processes, that I need a bit more than enthusiasm, a good basis of general knowledge and some limited experience.

This is what has pushed me to take a more hands on approach with the IEMA to bridge the gap in my qualifications, enhancing my career prospects and contributing to work that can help to transform society.
