Volunteering and careers

images/static_images/volunteering_pd_intro.jpg

Would you like to be more involved with the society? Are you looking for ways to gain professional development? If so, we'd love to have you on board.

We will post opportunities to volunteer for Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society (CSES) and our partner organisations here, along with other professional development ideas such as training and courses.

If any of these interests you, or if you'd like to volunteer your time generally, please get in touch. We could always do with more help.

Any time spent volunteering counts as Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

CSES is looking for a new Secretary

CSES is looking for a new Secretary

From Roger Pittock, our current Secretary

After much soul-searching, and having now had the honour and pleasure of serving 10 years in post, I am not seeking re-election as CSES Secretary. I am looking forward to continuing to support your Society from the Council, but not from the post of Secretary.

I am truly grateful to members for their support over the last 10 years, and I have learned a tremendous amount while in office. The position and experience opened many opportunities during my career.

Please consider putting yourself forward for this role. The time commitment is not that high overall, but comes in bursts. A brief overview follows.

CSES seeks video editor

CSES seeks video editor

As you may be aware, Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society (CSES) offers videos of its talks and some other events to members via the website.

Unfortunately, we have a huge backlog of videos from past events still to be published as we (the Committee) currently don't have sufficient capacity to work through them!

We are looking for a video editor (or team of editors) who would enjoy:

  • Creating standard title and closing graphics (idents).
  • Editing videos as required and preparing them for upload.
  • Bringing creative ideas to the process such as incorporation of speakers' slides where available.
  • Anything else that you can think of, such as filming events in the future.

This innovation webinar series, presented by Ideation in collaboration with IEEE UK & Ireland Section, comprises 25 free seminars. It runs fortnightly from Feb 2018 to Jan 2019 and covers best practices in managing intellectual assets. It includes sessions with topics for innovators, practitioners, and advanced IP managers.
