IOM3 is one of six professional organisations with representation on PERC and is looking for a member to join our team of volunteers who represent the IOM3 as a PERC member. Aside from making an input into the PERC Standard and acting as an advisor on specific associated projects which ensure good practice in the reporting of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, you will be responsible for ensuring that the needs of IOM3 members are being addressed. The time commitment will involve up to three meetings a year, and any additional “behind the scenes” involvement, whether as a representative of the IOM3, or as a subcommittee member of PERC. All related meetings are currently being held virtually, although in the future travel to a continental European destination may be required. Further background information is available from
