Is Graduate membership right for me?
Graduate membership is perfect for you if have a degree and are working in the wastes management industry (or looking for your first job in the sector). It is a great start advancing your professional development for a career in resource & waste management.
As they progress in their career, many Graduate members choose to become Chartered members. This professional grade demonstrates further experience and is a professional qualification (Chartered Waste Manager) that can be achieved through the demonstration of key competencies that you have gained from practical experience in wastes management.

Membership grade review
Following an extensive member consultation, it has been decided that, subject to a decision from the Privy Council, this CIWM membership grade will be brought into our Associate membership.
This is aimed at simplifying and modernising the CIWM member grade structure. Given the process involved in changing this structure, we can’t presently offer a completion date for this. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
