Join this SIG


Who are the GESGB Young Professionals?
The GESGB YPs are a group within the Geoscience Energy Society of Great Britain who cater to the needs of those with 10 or less years’ experience in the oil and gas industry. The YP group is run by Young Professionals, for Young Professionals. With committee members based in London, Aberdeen and Dublin we deliver multiple events every year, actively providing opportunities for YPs at the beating heart of the industry.

What is the aim of the GESGB Young Professionals?
The Young Professionals’ aim is to support and develop early career geoscientists; allowing everybody from students, new graduates and not-so-new graduates to benefit from cross-industry communication channels. As part of our work we look to assist in the career decisions of current undergraduate and postgraduate geoscience students who are contemplating what opportunities are open to them, making them aware of what the petroleum industry can offer and giving them a support network if they decide to join.

What can the GESGB Young Professionals do for me?
The YP community is active year-round, and you’re always welcome to come along. Seminars are frequently hosted, along with networking and social events, annual lectures, field trips and more. The YPs also manage the society-wide mentoring scheme and undergraduate mapping sponsorship’s.

Student mapping project:
The SIG is one again offering the opportunity to gain funding for mapping projects. See our FAQ’s document here
