Chemical Engineering: Industrial Relations and Sponsorship Officer

In the past year I have worked closely with the IR department of Chem Eng Soc as part of a sub-committee role. Here I contributed to ABB, Shell and other events. This has allowed me to learn how the IR department works and what exactly the job of IR Officer is – so I know what I am getting in to.

I have also worked in a recruitment consulting firm with my main job revolving around potential candidate and client outreach. This experience can directly relate to the IR Officer duties as I am used to and comfortable with going out on a limb to contact people. Getting to use this skill to talk with potential collaborators and sponsors for Chem Eng Soc would be an honour.

Additionally, I understand how much time and effort this degree often takes. By organising events and bringing the companies to YOU I wish to reduce your job/internship search stress.

My goals as Your IR Officer are to:
• Reduce presentations and increase workshop-based events
• Further develop the Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) project to increase student interaction with less represented industries.
• Work with the Alumni officer to use untapped alumni-IR collaboration potential.
• Increase the communication flow between the IR department of Chem Eng Soc and Chem Eng Soc members enabling the students to have their voices heard when it comes to external
events.
• Continue expanding and diversifying the Chem Eng Soc sponsor list.

Thank you for your consideration!
