For more than 65 years, the Institute of Water has helped people advance their careers in the water industry and supported employers by providing value-for-money professional development and networking opportunities.
In addition to professional registration, the Institute offers its members a structured approach to CPD, learning opportunities, a quarterly Journal, and access to relevant industry information. The non-hierachical environment encourages the sharing of knowledge and stimulates pride in the industry.
The Institute of Water has established a mentoring service that aims to help mentees gain new perspectives, learn new approaches, address challenges, find encouragement and remain motivated when the going is tough. There is a programme of events throughout the year on a diverse range of topical and relevant themes.
2012 will see many changes taking place particularly following the Water White Paper which promises to bring reform across the industry. As the Institute looks to support the development of talent within the water sector it has appointed MBRSS a dynamic, client focused business support and resource service provider, as its professional development partner to ensure a range of relevant career supporting services are available to its members.
Nick Ellins, president of the Institute of Water, explained: "As the institute of choice for the water industry professional, the Institute of Water is promoting excellence and creating the best possible business environment. Initiatives such as our mentoring programme are now linking developing talent directly with the top performers in the sector, helping them to advance their careers, enhance their skills and build their networks. We provide real substance for career growth and tangible benefits for the mentor and mentee.
"Having an experienced people-company like MBRSS as our new Professional Development Partner, enables the Institute of Water to provide further unique development opportunities and increase the support to those who wish to succeed in their industry career. "
Jason Johnson, CEO at MBRSS said: "This forward thinking partnership brings together a shared vision which focusses on the development of the talent which resides within the Water sector and actively encourages engagement at all levels to ensure positive growth in our industry continues. Both MBRSS and the Institute embrace the prospect of change which we will encounter in 2012 and will utilise our respective strengths to ensure the support required to sustain the development of our talent is not only available, but also tailored to maximise the benefits of the Institute of Water and what its membership offers."
