CIWM launches Technical membership

To meet the waste management and resource sector’s ever-growing demand to professionalise specific technical ability, CIWM has launched a new grade to its portfolio of membership options.

In response to market research and sector feedback, CIWM will now recognise the pathways of technically competent managers by awarding TechMCIWM membership to applicants with level 4 or higher technical qualifications or apprenticeships with two years’ experience.

This new membership grade has been launched to support sector businesses in developing the technical skills needed to help meet the UK’s net zero and circular economy ambitions, moving the world beyond waste.

Technical membership of CIWM will be self-selecting and assessed against a set of relevant membership criteria. Existing Associate Members will be able to transfer to Technical membership if they are able to demonstrate the appropriate expertise and experience.

CIWM’s Professional Services Director, Katie Cockburn, said: “We recognise that a one-size membership does not fit all, so our new technical membership will add real value for those in operational roles who feel that their significant skill set is not easily assimilated into one of CIWM’s existing membership grades.

“By creating technical membership with its own post-nominals, technically competent managers can be assured that CIWM will support and further their careers in the waste management and resource sector.”

Less than an hour to go! Webinar: Creating a transparent, compliant and resilient supply chain – diversity as a key enabler for success

8th March, 11am – 12pm

FMJ is teaming up with Alcumus, leaders in supply chain compliance, and their client Sodexo, world leader in catering and facilities management, to explore how FM professionals can deliver unique value to existing and prospective clients by creating a diverse and inclusive supply chain to help drive resilience and compliance.

According to research, 92 per cent of consumers are more likely to trust a company that supports social or environmental issues while 58 per cent of employees consider a company’s social and environmental commitments when deciding where to work.

The panel will explore how Alcumus and Sodexo are working in partnership to deliver supplier chain compliance for Sodexo, and why they are both so passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion beyond the workplace and into the supply chain.
