- Gain leadership skills and contribute to your own career development.
- Opportunity to help shape the activities of the land condition specialism.
- Rewarding experience to play a key role in a Network that supports the professional development of fellow early careers professionals.

The IES Land Condition ECN
The Land Condition ECN is a community of professionals in the early stages of their careers, working in land condition. The Network provides a forum for IES members within this specialism to connect with fellow early careers professionals and support their career development through workshops, webinars and networking socials.
The Network was established in 2019 and over the last four years has delivered a number of successful events. Past events have focused on both soft skills, such as a workshop on managing others, as well as technical skills and knowledge such as a half day event on handling big data. These events and meetups offer a friendly, supportive and accessible environment for members to build their skills, and provide an excellent CPD opportunity which can be used as evidence of development when upgrading from Associate to Full Member with the IES.
Join our Land Condition Early Careers Network Steering Group
Having been led by the IES staff team since its establishment, we are now seeking to create a steering group made up of IES members in a voluntary capacity to support the development of tailored services and activities for the ECN. We are looking for 3 IES members in the early stages of their careers to join this dedicated group at its inception, with a view to expanding the numbers by recruiting additional steering group members next year.
