Steps Ahead

CIPD is working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus to enable us to connect with 18-24-year-olds who are claiming Job Seekers’ Allowance. Our valued CIPD members are volunteering to work with these young people in a mutually beneficial mentoring relationship.

If you think you have what it takes to be a mentor to a young person, follow the Steps Ahead Mentoring link below for more information. Are you 18-24 years old? Do you fancy chatting to someone about getting into work, using your degree or completing application forms? Steps Ahead Mentoring will do just that and much more.


Midlands Annual Event

Building Workplaces for the Future - this full day event will offer a range of workshops for you to choose from, an exhibition and the chance to network with HR and L&D professionals from across the Midlands region.
