IES staff

People graphicOur work is driven by the skills and expertise of our staff. IES is multidisciplinary in nature, and our staff draw on a wide range of backgrounds, both academic and more practical in nature.

We operate high standards of recruitment and are an Investor in People, committed to providing skill and career development to all our staff.

We also work with a large number of associates, an extensive group of Honorary Fellows, and partner organisations in the UK and across Europe, drawing on their complementary skills, and local or specialist knowledge.
