IQ is looking to recruit a new Deputy Chairman and Board Members as part of its annual Board renewal cycle. This is major opportunity to take a leading role in the development of your Institute.

As we approach our centenary year, the Institute continues to grow and to develop, driven by a clear ambition for our future as a strong, attractive and relevant professional body. We are now looking to appoint strong candidates to the Board who share our drive and passion and who have the vision and creativity to help us to reach our goals. Becoming a Trustee of IQ offers a fantastic opportunity to develop your leadership and strategic skills, working alongside fellow Board members and supported by a highly capable team of staff. 

Deputy Chairman

Carrying significant leadership responsibilities, our new Deputy Chairman will become Chairman after a period of two years, and President following that. In applying, you should therefore be prepared to serve a 6-year term on the Board. Applicants must be Members or Fellows and possess the skills and attributes required to lead and represent the Institute at the highest levels.


In addition, we are looking to appoint two further Members or Fellows as Trustees on the Board, each for a period of two years. Responsible for the strategic and financial stewardship of the Institute, Trustees will need to commit to attending quarterly Board meetings.

All three positions are subject to an initial short-listing process, followed by election by members of the Institute at the AGM on 20thSeptember 2016.

We are looking for candidates from a variety of backgrounds who believe they can contribute to our new vision of the Institute. In return, we offer significant opportunities for professional development and for influencing the direction of the Institute’s future in the wide ranging extractives industry.
