Gradute engineer Paul Astle has been chosen as an additional apprentice to incoming ICE President Peter Hansford.
Astle, from consulltant Pick Everard, will join six other young engineers from across the UK who have already been selected for the apprentice scheme. Hansford was able to select an additional apprentice after one of the original six relocated to Australia and became a “corresponding” apprentice.
The apprentices will work closely with Peter Hansford throughout his presidential year and will be given the
opportunity to be involved in the President’s high level work, including accompanying him on regional visits and at influential events and seeing first-hand how the Institution works to influence government and decision-makers.
Astle said: “I am keen to see the inner workings of the Institution and learn more about its role in leading the industry, and, in turn, influencing our built environment.”
“I’m also looking forward to getting some advice from the President of the ICE and being part of a very accomplished peer group of other apprentices.”
Hansford said: “These are all upcoming engineers with a lot of energy and ideas and it will be great to have their input on the many challenges facing the industry.”
