SOE Council Elections

23rd Feb 2017

Help shape the future of Operations Engineering

Each year, elections are held for positions on SOE’s Trustee Board and its three Professional Sector Councils (PSCs). The Trustee Board and PSCs assist in shaping how the SOE is run, and have direct input into issues that affect fellow members and the engineering profession.

Professional Sector Council members are not directors or trustees of SOE, but assist their respective Professional Sector through their time and expertise. PSC members are required to commit to approximately four days per year to attend meetings. Applicants possessing experience at a senior level in one or more of the following are sought for the PSCs:

IRTE: three vacancies

The IRTE PSC is seeking members with a background in education/ training, the Armed Forces, vehicle bodybuilding, bus and coach, haulage and distribution, consultancy, and waste management.

IPlantE: four vacancies

The IPlantE PSC is seeking members with a background in engineering and appropriate experience and interest in all aspects of plant engineering.

BES: three vacancies

The BES PSC is seeking members involved with statutory plant examinations and inspections who would be willing to mentor engineer surveyors.
