The new corporate partners scheme is designed to forge closer links between IChemE and the companies that employ its members. Corporate partners pay an annual one-off fee to support IChemE’s whynotchemeng and on campus campaigns, and cover costs for accredited company training schemes. Employees of corporate partners can also receive additional advice on achieving Chartered status.
IChemE Chief Executive, David Brown presented the corporate partners certificate last week to a team of Sellafield Ltd staff at the company’s site in West Cumbria.

“As a corporate partner, Sellafield will be able to point to a badge of excellence that will help them to secure and retain the talent they need,” said Brown.

Sebastian Proctor, Chief Process Engineer at Sellafield said: “We are delighted to become IChemE’s first corporate partner. This important achievement recognises the strong and supportive relationship we have with IChemE.

“This association will also enhance the Sellafield Ltd brand as we look to attract the best chemical engineering talent into the industry to tackle the unique and exciting challenges we face on the Sellafield site in the coming years.”

The corporate partners scheme supports companies across four business areas: Securing the talent pipeline of chemical engineers; Recruiting and retaining staff; Ensuring standards of in-company training and development programmes; and Influencing key audiences through IChemE events, activities and publications.

Sellafield has two sites, one in West Cumbria and one at Capenhurst, Cheshire. The company carries out some of the most innovative and complex nuclear decommissioning work in the world and employs more than 350 chemical and process engineers.
