Do you want to support the Commission work and help it to be the UK’s most credible, forward-thinking and influential voice on infrastructure policy and strategy?

If the answer’s yes, then the Commission wants to hear from you. It is now actively recruiting members for the next Young Professionals Panel (YPP).

From finding innovative ways to promote long-term thinking on infrastructure to challenging emerging thinking on policy, the YPP plays a crucial role in supporting and informing the Commission’s work. With the government due to publish a National Infrastructure Strategy in March in response to the Commission’s inaugural National Infrastructure Assessment, this is a fantastic time to get involved in the work of the Commission.

The next iteration of the YPP will consist of ten members, and they will serve a two-year term. The Commission is looking to recruit member who truly reflects the diversity of the UK’s infrastructure sectors and is encouraging applications from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines.

More details are available here on the Treasury website.

You can also find out more about the current members of the Young Professionals Panel and their existing programme here.
