The ICE is calling for applications to the 2015-2016 ICE President’s Apprentice Scheme, which is open to all technicians and ICE graduate members working towards their professional qualification.
The scheme has been running since 2005. It offers six to eight young members a unique opportunity to gain experience, develop skills, learn about the industry and be mentored by the ICE President and ICE director general.
This year the scheme is expanding from a year to a more extended career development programme.
Successful applicants will attend ICE events, meet senior industry people and join incoming President, Sir John Armitt (pictured), on regional visits. They will also choose a strategic project to work on to help make a real contribution to the profession.
At the end of the President’s term, the apprentices automatically become part of the President’s Apprentice “alumni network”, which provides opportunities to engage and network with a dynamic peer group for the rest of their career.
Applicants must complete an application form and write a 500 word statement relating to the project they want to work on. This must be sent with a CV and a line managers’ reference by 4 September.
