Events in London

There are seven dedicated branch networks situated in London, each of whom programme a range of local CPD, networking and special interest group events throughout the year.

The CIPD volunteer network in London caters for over 22,000 CIPD members, which represents 1/5 of the CIPD’s overall membership. This makes CIPD London a truly significant geographical area, both in terms of membership density, but also in terms of the wider social and political responsibility we have to help support the CIPD’s strategy to champion better work and working lives.

Over the coming months we have a vibrant schedule of activity on offer, so whether you are a CIPD student, or a Chartered Fellow, there will be something of interest to you close by in your local area.

About CIPD London

Officially launched at City Hall in September 2013, CIPD London has the specific aim of becoming the official voice for people management and development in the Capital. The region is made up of seven branches who have been working collaboratively to help develop a compelling and influential presence in London, whilst also delivering high quality support and networking opportunities at local level. Over the summer of 2014 the London chairs group have been busy planning and producing the very first CIPD London business plan which sets out the aspirations of our collaborative efforts and our commitment to:

  1. play our part in tackling the youth employment and skills agenda
  2. strengthen our focus on CIPD Centers and Students
  3. provide relevant and topical events across the region to meet the CPD needs of HR professionals.
Our location means that we are at the heart of a proud, growing community of practitioners, members, partners and thought leaders and through our combined and collaborative efforts we’ll take big steps towards championing better work and working lives.

Face-to-face upgrading events

In addition to upgrading by telephone assessment or application form, eligible Associate members and Chartered Members can also upgrade to Chartered Member or Chartered Fellow by face-to-face assessment, subject to meeting the criteria. We will be hosting face to face upgrading events in the London area over the coming year.
