Incoming ICE President Paul Sheffield is looking for six to eight technician or graduate members to join him as his Future Leaders.

They will take over from current ICE President Andrew Wyllie’s Future Leaders (pictured with Wyllie centre).

The President’s Future Leaders Scheme is an opportunity for up-and-coming engineers and technicians to gain an insight into the top of the profession and to boost their careers.

Successful candidates will work on strategic ICE projects, attend key ICE events, and meet senior industry people and politicians.

They will be mentored by the President and accompany him on his regional visits.

Sheffield is to use his presidential year to build on the success of ICE’s bicentenary activities.

This will include emphasising the need to continue to speak to those outside the ICE, educate those unfamiliar with the industry, and demonstrate that civil engineering is an exciting career.  

Future Leaders Scheme applications must include a discussion of the industry’s efforts to embrace modern technology and recognise the benefits of digital innovation.

Applicants should answer the following question: “Technology is advancing at an incredible pace. What innovations that we are seeing today do you believe will become the normal way of designing and/or delivering infrastructure projects in 10 years’ time?”  

Answers can be provided in the candidate’s format of choice, including a short video or written statement.

Applicants must also submit their CVs and a reference from their line manager, supporting the application.

The scheme is open to all ICE technician and graduate members who are working towards professional qualification.

Candidates should submit applications to by 19 July.

  • Further details and the application form can be found on the ICE website.
