Whether you are a Fellow or new to the Society, achieving chartered status through Chartered Geographer (CGeog) unlocks a number of benefits for professionals using geographical knowledge, understanding and skills in the workplace.
Chartered Geographer (CGeog) is an internationally recognised professional accreditation for those with competence, experience and professionalism in the use of geographical knowledge, understanding, and skills in the workplace. There are currently over 650 Chartered Geographers, from a wide range of professions.
Max Ridley, the Society’s Professional Officer responsible for CGeog, has been speaking to Chartered Geographers about their experience of professional accreditation:
Ashley Parry Jones CGeog, Senior Technical Director at Mouchel, values the recognition he receives from his employer and his clients:
“People should absolutely apply for Chartered Geographer. Not only will it help them join a community of like-minded geographers, but it will also help them gain professional recognition from their employer as well as people that they might work for as clients.
“Crucially, it helps them demonstrate to their employers that they are prepared to invest in themselves; with luck that might mean their employer rewards them more. Certainly, people who have professional qualifications tend to receive greater salaries.”
CGeog gives Marielle O’Lone CGeog (GIS), Senior GIS Consultant at Mouchel, the motivation to develop her skills and knowledge:
“It does make me think about my future career, in terms of continuing with the Continuing Professional Development and the application of GIS. It makes you quite excited.
“Chartered Geographer is definitely something I would look for, as an employer. CGeog is a recognition of my professionalism, and shows how dedicated I am to the discipline.”
Watch the full interviews with Ian, Ashley and Marielle as they talk about the benefits of gaining recognition for their expertise, and the professional development and networking opportunities available to those accredited through CGeog.
