At CIEH we have a vision of a world with safer, cleaner and healthier environments for all, and our member volunteers play a crucial part in helping us achieve this vision.

Whatever your professional experience, you will find lots of interesting opportunities to get involved with supporting our work. All CIEH volunteer opportunities are open to members only.

How members can get involved

Become a CIEH Career ambassador and help us raise awareness of environmental health and inspire others to join the profession. There are simply not enough people joining the profession and we need your help to spread the word amongst school children, young people and those looking to change careers.

If you have the time and enthusiasm, we’ll provide you with the support and materials you need to inspire the next generation of environmental health professionals.

We're looking for mentors to support the personal and professional development of candidates on the pathway to Registration as an Environmental Health Practitioner (EHP).

The CIEH Advisory Panels provide member-led insight, evidence and advice on policy and campaigning activity.

Volunteers play an important role at CIEH, including:

  • Committee and advisory group members
  • Trustees
  • Assessors

When vacancies occur, we advertise for vacant roles on our advisory groups, Board of Trustees and committees on our work for us page.
