Welcome to the IGI Website

The Institute of Geologists of Ireland was formed in 1999 to promote the geosciences in Ireland and to represent the professional interests of its members. Membership is open to all practising geoscientists who meet the required standards of qualification and experience, and the IGI operates with the support of all the major geoscience based technical societies.  Read more about IGI »

Mentorship Scheme

The IGI has established a free, voluntary mentorship scheme for members. Research shows that mentoring helps both mentees and mentors - both groups have higher salaries, climb their career ladders faster and are more satisfied with their careers overall. More specifically, IGI members stand to benefit from a Mentorship Scheme in order to prepare for chartership, develop Personal Career Plans within the IGI CPD framework and to manage career changes which many of us experience as geoscience professionals.
