Event description

Description

Are you considering a career in environment or sustainability? If you’re a student or graduate potentially interested in developing a career in this globally relevant area, this IEMA Yorkshire and Humberside regional event is for you. It’s ideal for anyone studying environmental subjects, as well as anyone training in other disciplines who might be interested in using their skills in environment and sustainability professions.

Come along and get the chance to see some engaging presentations from leading names in the private, public and charity sectors. You’ll learn about the scope of their roles, how they’ve shaped their careers (often from a non-environmental background) and hear key advice to help you actively pursue work in the environment and sustainability sector.

After a session of short presentations, you’ll get the opportunity to meet all the speakers individually or in small groups, to put your questions to them to get real, valuable careers advice based on their practical experiences. Your presenters, which include established professionals and recent graduates, are: Jenny Connell, Principal Environmental Project Manager with the Environment Agency; Nigel Sagar, Senior Sustainability Manager with Skanska, a major construction and engineering company; Richard Smith, Sustainability Manager with the BBC; and Natasha Yorke-Edgell, political campaigns officer with the RSPB.

The event is completely free to attend and is open to all – there is no IEMA membership required! So come along and take this opportunity to further your future career in environment and sustainability. Book your place now.

The event will take place in Room 8.119, Building 84 - please click here to view a campus map.
