CIWEM announces new business partnership with RPS

CIWEM is delighted to welcome RPS as a business partner.

RPS is a leading global professional services firm of over 5,000 employees, including consultants and service providers. Operating in 125 countries and working across six continents, RPS define, design and manage projects that create shared value in a complex, urbanising and resource-scarce world.

RPS provides us support in a number of activities, from participating in expert panels and sharing insights and knowledge, to acting as accessors and interviewers for new candidates. This relationship will be further strengthened by this partnership.

Darren Eckford, CIWEM Director of Learning and Organisational Development said, "Our organisations hold a long-standing relationship and RPS has provided industry-leading support of CIWEM over many years. RPS shares our committment to the highest technical standards, and we look forward to this partnership opening up even more opportunities for to share knowledge and best practice."

CIWEM will support these objectives and provide RPS' employees with on-demand access and support for their professional development, bespoke mentor training sessions or routes towards professional recognition. CIWEM will assist and accredit the RPS Professional Development Scheme, providing a clear path to chartership for early career professionals. This scheme will ensure that RPS employees get the training and diversity of work they seek, to help them achieve the required competencies.

A business partnership with CIWEM demonstrates a commitment in joining our aim of working towards a safer, more sustainable world. CIWEM business partners are dedicated to environmental best practice and safeguarding the health of people and nature for current and future generations. RPS will benefit from bespoke support from CIWEM to aid them in realising their goals of becoming global leaders in sustainability and resilience.

Joe Sanders, Technical Director in Water Technical and a Fellow of CIWEM, said: “It is great for RPS to formalise our partnership with CIWEM. Many of our practitioners are already individual members (of CIWEM) and already participate in activities. As leading environmental and water consultancies the synergies between RPS and CIWEM are obvious, and we are looking forward to working with the CIWEM team to further enhance this relationship.”
