Groups / Emerging Professionals


Formed to help the emerging generation of consultants and engineers working in the natural and built environments, Emerging Professionals provides networking and career development opportunities across the country. These events also enable members to develop their business skills and keep abreast of industry developments.

Regional committees mirror ACE’s region and provide representation of the next generation of consultants and engineers, with members coming from ACE member organisations large and small. Emerging Professionals' members come from a broad range of consultancy and engineering disciplines, including; civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineers, lawyers, architects, accountants, project managers, cost consultants and more.

Our members range from those at the start of their careers to more experienced professionals, up to approximately 35 years old. They are ambitious, enthusiastic and keen to share their experiences with their peers.

Being part of this gives you the chance to establish a strong network base in the industry, share your views and ideas, develop new skills and hear from influential people in the industry. It is our mission to be the number one business forum for young professionals in the industry.

Emerging Professionals runs a series of events throughout the year including inspirational presentations on key topics and social evenings. Emerging Professionals is currently sponsored by Mott MacDonald.

The Chair is Georgia Hughes of Arcadis.
