Do you want to be involved in the running of IWater’s Young Persons’ Network (YPN), helping it expand and thrive?

If so, we have just the volunteer opportunity for you as we are looking for a new Young Persons’ Network National Co-Rep!

Why apply?

Becoming a National YPN Co-Rep is a fantastic leadership development opportunity, helping build your management and organisational skills.

You can work on your own personal brand, as you will become a figurehead for the YPN, networking with like-minded professionals and sector leaders.

You can also grow your confidence and professional development as the role allows you to have a voice across different IWater Committees, learning how strategies are developed and organisational changes are implemented.

You will also be involved in national YPN events and speak as a representative of the network to our Board.

How to apply

We are looking for someone who is passionate about professional development. We want to further diversify IWater’s membership population, so we need someone who is willing to bring their own ideas on how we can achieve this.

We are also looking for someone willing to commit the time necessary to perform in this role, which works out to be roughly an average of 2 volunteer days per month.

To apply, you must be an IWater member, as well as a young professional working in or around the water sector.

Please send your CV and a cover letter on why you feel you would be the right fit for the role to Abbie Thornton. After you have submitted your application, we will be in touch regarding setting up an interview.

Applications close on May 2nd, 2023.
