Peer to peer support
Volunteering is a great way to support other members through their career while also developing skills that may benefit your career. Below are some suggestions for how you might consider getting involved.
Our Chartered status award requires members who have already been awarded CChem status to become mentors for other prospective Chartered Chemists. Do you work with someone who you know would like to work towards their Chartered status or maybe someone that you would like to encourage to begin the process?
Our mentor scheme provides you with the opportunity to give back to others who are earlier on in their career and use your expertise and skills to help them as well as support your own professional development.
CCF Volunteer visitor
Our Chemists’ Community Fund relies on our volunteer visitors who play a major role in providing support for individuals on a local level. Visit support is subject to local requests and demand can be unpredictable and fluctuate, but when we do receive requests for support, we aim to meet the needs as quickly as possible and ensure we have enough trained volunteers in a local area to support this.
Local section and interest group committee
Through volunteering on a committee you can be involved in organising events for your community and providing that level of networking support
Academic and Industry representatives
Our workplace representatives support their peers in finding out more about their membership and also coordinating visits from RSC staff.
