Séan Harris

After a distinguished career in the Royal Engineers which included a spell as the UK Defence Advisor and Commander of British Gurkhas in Nepal, Séan Harris joined ICE as Director of Membership in 2015.

Séan is guided by a core principle of growing a diverse, broad and professionally qualified membership. By helping individuals to realise their potential and supporting employers in attaining the highest professional standards, he believes that ICE can play a powerful and positive role in meeting the great challenges that society faces. Crucial to this is ensuring high member satisfaction and the desire to remain an ICE member for life.

Under his direction, ICE was the only Professional Engineering Institution (PEI) to have grown professionally qualified membership every year from 2017-2021, one of only two PEIs to have seen a year-on-year increase in university applications, and has led the engineering profession in terms of annual growth in female and BME membership.

Séan is responsible for overseeing the creation and delivery the membership proposition. This includes programmes to inspire students to study and practice civil engineering, the accreditation of civil engineering degrees, the Initial Professional Development of graduates, Professional Reviews for the technician, incorporated and chartered qualification, and Continuing Professional Development and delivery of lifelong learning.
