Voluntary role
Closing date
30 Mar 2023

This role focusses on leading ASV (Active Supporter & Volunteer) activity in the accreditation of further and higher education courses, in addition to company initial professional development schemes that lead to professional registration. This role also involves being a member of the IOM3 Professional Standards & Development Board. We are therefore looking for someone with suitable seniority in their area of professional competence, with a strong passion for the Institute’s charitable purpose and its members and other stakeholders. We are also particularly keen to improve the diversity of our volunteer cadre.

Nominees must hold the Fellow (FIMMM) membership grade in addition to being a Chartered Engineer (CEng) registered through IOM3 and have held both credentials for at least six years. Being registered as a Chartered Scientist (CSci) and/or Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) would be an advantage but not essential.

Nominees must hold current IOM3 licenced activity assessor certification and have at least six years’ current experience as an accreditation assessor; having been active on one of the licenced activity committees will be an advantage.

Nomination is by submission of:

  • a CV.
  • a statement of what you propose to do as Chair of the APFC including what you plan to do to maintain professional standards and to improve equality, diversity and inclusion in this role.
  • A supporting statement from another voting (corporate) member of IOM3.

These should reach Anita Horton [email protected] by 0800 on 30 March 2023. Please also contact Anita if you would like to arrange an informal discussion about the role.
