Corporate partner scheme from IChemE
21 April 2009
The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) has launched a corporate partner programme, which has been introduced to integrate and enhance various strands of its business and forge stronger links with industry employers. Corporate partners will be able to pay a one-off annual fee to ensure involvement in IChemE’s campaigns.

The scheme will also cover costs for accredited company training schemes (ACTS) and professional development support for staff. Partners will also benefit from a range of PR and marketing opportunities with IChemE.
The initiative is built around four areas of support: Securing the talent pipeline of graduate chemical engineers; recruiting and retaining competent, qualified staff; ensuring that training and development programmes remain relevant, up-to-date and of high quality; and influencing key audiences on a limited budget through IChemE events, activities and publications. Companies will still be able to invest in single components of the corporate partner package, such as whynotchemeng sponsorship or ACTS.
IChemE Chief Executive, David Brown believes many will see the benefits of becoming a corporate partner. “Corporate partners will have greater involvement with IChemE and will be able to point to a badge of excellence that will help them secure and retain the talent they need. They’ll also save money and reduce administration,” Brown commented.
“Many of the employers we work with, whether through ACTS, whynotchemeng or oncampus are already eligible for corporate partner status. We’ve had strong signs of interest within industry and have already begun signing up our first corporate partners,” said Brown.
