Registration

Are you a consultant?

Registration on the Professional Directory is open to all Fellow, Full and Associate Members of CIEEM that offer their services on a commercial basis.

The CIEEM Professional Directory utilises online and print promotion to ensure maximum coverage for the ecologists and environmental managers that have a listing. CIEEM directly promotes the Professional Directory to Government and other public bodies, Statutory Nature Conservation Agencies and Local Authority Planning Authorities throughout the UK and Ireland. The Directory is also promoted at various National events each year such as the RTPI Planning Convention and Ecobuild conference.

Costs

Basic Listing = No charge

Enhanced Listing = Renewable every 12 months;  fee is assessed on the size of your company:

£100 per year - sole trader/small size enterprise (1-3 employees)
£250 per year - medium size enterprise (4-10 employees)
£500 per year - large size enterprise (11+ employees)

The additional benefits received for an enhanced listing (see above table) will be displayed for all personal entries under that company name.

Enhanced listings must be paid for in full in advance of publication. An invoice will be issued after online registration has been completed.

Eligibility

The Professional Directory is open to Fellow, Full or Associate Members that offer their services on a commercial basis. All members registered on the directory must have appropriate Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) (proof of which will be required) and be up to date with the Institute’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.

Annual Checks

Entries on the Professional Directory will be reviewed annually in October when your membership is due. This ensures that all the entries remain current and that the Institute is promoting professional ecologists that adhere to the requirements for registration. If your membership renewal has not been received before 1 November, your listing on the directory will be suspended until such time as you renew your CIEEM membership. You will be notified of your profile being removed by email.

Promotion

The CIEEM Professional Directory utilises both online and print promotion to ensure maximum coverage for the ecologists and environmental managers that have a listing. CIEEM directly promotes the Professional Directory to Government and other public bodies, Statutory Nature Conservation Organisations and Local Planning Authorities throughout the UK and Ireland. The Directory is also promoted at National events each year such as the RTPI Planning Convention and Ecobuild conference.

Discussions are also underway with the Biodiversity Planning Toolkit Project Group to link the Professional Directory to the Biodiversity Planning Toolkit website to increase exposure and we will be looking at further marketing opportunities over the coming months.

Signing up for the Professional Directory will mean you (along with your consultancy) are being advertised to the public, developers (and other ecologists/environmental managers!)

You must be ‘professionally competent’ in all the areas of work (keywords) you select during the registration process. Claiming competence out-with your sphere of knowledge, skills and experience is a breach of CIEEM’s Code of Professional Conduct, which, as a CIEEM member, you have agreed to adhere to. The directory promotes individuals rather than companies, so you yourself (and not another member of staff in the same company) must have the competencies chosen.

We are making some improvements

We will soon be launching a revised and inproved version of the Professional Directory to make it even simpler to use and even easier for you to promote your services to a growing audience of potential clients.  We are therefore temporarily unable to add further listings to the Professional Directory while we finalise this process.

If you are interested in being added to the Directory or in upgrading your existing listing please register your interest and we will notify you as soon as the new Directory is available.  Many thanks for your patience.
