Topic: Land Condition Early Careers Network: Top 10 tips for remediation

This network is a forum for land condition professionals in the early stages of their career (~first 10 years) designed to provide support, professional development and an opportunity for members to develop key skills.

For the first time the IES and the society for remediation practitioners in the UK (RemSoc) have joined forces to bring you a unique online afternoon event for land condition Early Career Professionals. This event will provide you with top tips when working on remediation projects and introduce the SiLC Affiliate Scheme designed to assist graduates, as well as more experienced individuals, to work towards full membership of a professional body and chartered status with the aim to then progress towards SiLC/SQP registration.

When considering the topic of remediation, there is a huge amount of information that can be covered. The RemSoc Steering Committee have therefore pooled their combined years of insight and experience in the remediation and brownfield industry to provide a series of themes around the 10 most important tips for Early Career Professionals when they’re considering remediation. The talk will finish with a high level overview of the RemSoc Practitioners Framework for Remediation, which was developed to assist remediation practitioners in the planning and execution of remediation projects.
