Every year the ICE President chooses some of the brightest and most motivated graduate and technician members to be on the Future Leaders Scheme.

This popular and highly competitive scheme has been running since 2005 and applications for next year opened on May 4. It gives graduate members a unique opportunity to gain experience, develop skills and learn about the industry.

Future Leaders meet and engage with senior engineering professionals, getting invaluable insight into industry development. They also become part of the Presidents' Future Leader alumni network.

The current Future Leaders for 2019-2020 (Hayley Jackson, Holly Smith, Louise Hetherington, Tim Hou, Joe Marner and Chris Landsburgh) will discuss why they applied, their experiences, projects they have been involved in and why you should apply.

Followed by Q&A session to ask any questions regarding applications.
