Yorkshire & the Humber

Welcome to CIHT Yorkshire & the Humber 

We have over 750 members in the Region. Our focus is on building on the professional standing of our members and forging collaborative working practices. CIHT Yorkshire & the Humber includes: City of Kingston upon Hull; East Ridings of Yorkshire; North East Lincolnshire; North Lincolnshire; North Yorkshire; South Yorkshire; West Yorkshire and York. We make a significant contribution to the work of the Yorkshire & Humber Infrastructure Alliance. 

Note from the Chair 

As Chair of the Yorkshire and Humber region, I wanted to send a message to all local Highways & Transport professionals to encourage you to maintain and use your association with CIHT to help you through the difficult time that we are all experiencing at the moment.  Whether you are working from home or currently furloughed, it’s really important that you stay connected and keep up to speed with what’s going on in the sector and your local area so that you can carry on with your career development post-Covid 19. 

You may have noticed that CIHT is offering more CPD webinars which will keep you informed and support your professional development. We are providing regular updates on the state of the sector and up the minute news on our website which is transport specific. 

For those who have yet to re-new their membership this year, I understand that paying your membership subscription may not be a priority, or may be financially difficult right now, but CIHT is committed to supporting everyone in the sector through this time.  How? Firstly, by waiving the reinstatement fee and secondly by having conversations with members about payment options and taking advantage of the concessionary subscription rate. The membership team (membership@ciht.org.uk) would be pleased to hear from you.

Regrettably due to Covid-19 we have cancelled this year’s annual award dinner, originally planned to be held on Friday 25th September 2020 in Leeds. We are still planning on opening the awards for submission and plan to announce award winners this year in a less formal setting. We will finalise the submission forms soon and let you know the process, but in the meantime please think of what you can submit for the following awards categories : 

  • Apprentice of the Year
  • Young Professional of the Year
  • Large Project of the Year
  • Small Project of the Year

Remember, CIHT is your membership body and it is here to help you.

James Leeming, Chair of CIHT Yorkshire & the Humber

Getting Involved

CIHT Yorkshire & the Humber has had a key role in creating the Yorkshire & Humber Infrastructure Alliance which represents 80% of the industry in the region and brings together professional and learned bodies to maximise the impact of both infrastructure spending and the devolution of powers. The Alliance, which includes the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), has produced a Transport Manifesto which addresses the need to improve poor transport connectivity within the Region and to national networks, as well as to improve the resilience of our transport infrastructure, and suggests ways to overcome the dire skills shortage we face. We continue to work alongside other Institutions such as the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Transport Planning Society in the planning and marketing of our events in order to support mutual aims

If you would like to get involved in the work of the committee please contact us via e: yorkshireandthehumber@ciht.org.uk

We are keen to promote the profession to young people considering their future careers. To that end we have featured three of our young professionals in film clips talking about their jobs in Highways & Transportation.  We are happy to support potential candidates for the Institution’s professional qualifications through mentoring and practical advice.  Please contact us on e: yorkshireandthehumber@ciht.org.uk if you want assistance.

Events in the Region

In addition to our general programme of events, we celebrate achievement in the Region through the presentation of our ‘Best Highways & Transportation Project’, ‘Young Professional of the Year’ and 'Apprentice of the Year' awards at our Annual Awards & Dinner Dance.

We have an active Young Professionals Committee which plans a range of technical and social events aimed at colleagues at the start of their careers. Social aspects include a  5-a-side football tournament, 10-pin bowling and pub quizzes. If you want to get involved please get in touch.
