Applications open for next President's Future Leaders

Incoming ICE President Paul Sheffield is looking for six to eight technician or graduate members to join him as his Future Leaders.

The President’s Future Leaders Scheme is a fantastic opportunity for up-and-coming engineers and technicians to gain an insight into the top of the profession and to boost their careers.

Successful candidates will work on strategic ICE projects; attend key Institution events; meet senior industry people and politicians; be mentored by the president; and accompany him on regional visits.

Sheffield will be using his presidential year to build on the success of our bicentenary activities.

This will include emphasising the need to continue to speak to those outside ICE, educate those unfamiliar with the industry, and demonstrate that civil engineering is an exciting career.
