The Geological Society promotes and implements the adoption of professional standards in the geosciences principally by awarding Chartered status (CGeol and CSci). Chartership demonstrates that an individual is regarded by his/her peers as competent to practice within their chosen field. The Society’s Chartership Officer plays a pivotal role in promoting and developing Chartership, facilitating the accreditation process, and responding to enquiries. The Society seeks to appoint a Chartership Officer due to the retirement of the current post-holder.
