AGI provides a collective voice for the geospatial industry and support to its members throughout their careers and as their businesses grow.
However, we want to do more to help our younger members, early in their careers, by establishing a support network and a programme of events targeted at the needs of Early Career Professionals including:
We are working closely with our colleagues in The Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Scottish Geographical Society in order to align our collective activities and events and to ensure that our combined efforts help younger professionals build their careers and their case for Chartered Geographer accreditation.
We are also keen that this initiative is driven by early career professionals and that it reflects your views and needs. Therefore, we also wish to create a small team of volunteers (who are at an early stage in their careers), to design and run the network.
AGI/UCL/BCS GIS Careers Day
AGI is launching the Early Careers Network at The AGI/UCL/BCS careers event in London on Monday 23rd March, so If you are attending and wish to know more, please come along for a chat.
On behalf of AGI.
