JCT’s Young Professional Group (YPG) are to host their first joint networking event in partnership with members of the Chartered Institute of Building’s (CIOB) Tomorrow’s Leaders, and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) Matrics UK.
The event, taking place on 26 October at RICS headquarters in London, will be the first time that JCT’s YPG has joined with peer groups from professional bodies across the construction industry.
The event will be an opportunity for members from the three groups to meet informally, discuss ideas and relevant topics, and gain the perspective of other young professionals working across all areas of the built environment.
The JCT YPG is a focus group for construction professionals within the first ten years of their career, those ‘young in the industry’ regardless of age, and students. Membership of the group provides peer-to-peer networking opportunities across all sectors of the industry, including events, webinars, and talks from industry professionals.
Exclusive access to the JCT YPG online portal also provides videos, articles, papers, blogs, interviews, and more.
The YPG is a unique membership group within the construction industry as, just as JCT itself is comprised of member bodies from across the built environment, the YPG also aims to bring together young people from all professions to learn, connect, and gain a broader perspective on key issues.
This networking event, joining with groups from two of the UK’s major construction professional bodies, is an important occasion for all those early in their career looking to establish new connections and learn more about the wider industry.
Access to the event is for YPG members only. More information including how to join, is available at https://ypg.jctltd.co.uk.
