Civil engineering graduates looking for a chance to advance their professional development are being called to sign up to be an ICE Alumni Ambassador.

In this role, volunteers will support students enrolled in civil engineering degrees, offer insight into professional life and help to enhance the student's career prospects.

There will be a range of opportunities to choose from.

For example, ambassadors could:

  • Act as a tutor for students on a virtual work package to aid their professional development.
  • Be a speaker for an ICE Career Talk, delivering an online presentation to give students industry insight.
  • Deliver a lecture or support at an event, open day or careers fair at a university.

The Alumni Ambassador role looks to build on the success of activities such as the ICE Summer Project, to help connect ICE student members with other members of the institution.

Boost your professional development

Graduate members will benefit from opportunities to boost their own professional development.

Alumni Ambassadors can build evidence towards the ICE attributes as part of the institution’s Initial Professional Development (IPD) process. ICE will certify the contribution as IPD.

How much time will be required?

The amount of time ambassadors can expect to offer is flexible.

It will depend on the activities volunteers choose to support. It could be as little as a few hours.
