Early Careers Network

Early careers network

Welcome to EEH's Early Careers Network.

This is a supportive community for anybody who considers themselves a developing professional in the transport sector.

Our aim is to provide support for personal and professional growth to all developing members of the transport industry, to allow them to flourish into skilled future leaders.

We are inclusive. The network will provide support to everyone who considers themselves an emerging transport professional. We value the information and skills sharing that comes with bringing together the diverse roles in the sector.

Our objectives are to provide intra sector opportunities for development. We provide a space for key learning and where challenges can be discussed and shared.
