Social Secretary & AspirATions Vice-Chair
Emma Thomson, ACIAT
I have been a member of CIAT since joining an accredited BSc in 2013. During my final year of study I became involved with the West Midlands aspirATion committee and attended regular regional meetings. Visiting all universities in the region I discussed my experience transitioning into the working world - taking an optional placement year. This led to me upgrading from a student membership to an associate member in 2017.
Following my return to London, I was asked to join the Greater London aspirATion committee. Visiting end of year shows, careers fairs and lectures I have met many student members in the region and hope to develop an active social group.
Continuing my involvement I attend the regional committee meetings and have since been asked to take on the role of social-secretary. This coincides with my responsibilities with aspirATion to establish a proactive network of people.
