ICE has issued a call for members, particularly graduates, to sign up for a new volunteering opportunity.

As an ICE Alumni Ambassador, volunteers will support students enrolled in civil engineering degrees, offer insight into professional life and help to enhance the students’ 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.

There are more ways to offer support. Examples are available on the online form where volunteers can indicate how they would like to help.

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

Register by 31 July

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 with. It could be as little as a few hours.
