Help AGI Build a Support Network for Early Career Professionals

6th March 2015

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:

  • better understanding of the issues faced by early career professionals
  • raising their profile within the industry through showcasing at AGI events
  • targeted training and workshops in communication and networking skills
  • training in the Cgeog application process
  • increasing industrial awareness / thematic training
  • mentoring from industry leaders

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.

If you have less than 10 years work experience and are interested in becoming part of this network, please send an email stating your interest to This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.

This is a great opportunity for you to get directly involved with AGI and to gain recognition across the industry. If you think you can helps us take this forward please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
