We recognise that a number of our members once graduated will move around the country on graduate placement schemes or re-locate for other various reasons. We have been working with a group of IFST members in their first three years after graduation to find out how we can help our members and their early career development.
Our Committee member Belinda Ashong is kindly leading this initiative for our region. If you are interested in getting more involved, please get in touch. Please note that you need to be an IFST member.
