Volunteering is a great way to develop your skills, build your professional profile and shape the future of the profession. The IET offers flexible roles to suit all levels of skills, experience and time commitment.

Having benefited from the wonderful support IET Connect gave me, I want to give back to my community and become a mentor for young engineers. I’d like to offer career guidance and would encourage people to join the oil and gas industry. I plan to study more, there’s always more to learn.
