Mid and North Anglia Branch

CIPD Branches - networking, insights and professional support

About us

Welcome to the CIPD Mid and North Anglia Branch area.

We have around 3,000 plus members in our branch which covers a wide geographical area. In our Branch we recognise that our geography makes branch wide events impractical for most members. We operate via three Groups - Cambridgeshire, Greater Peterborough and Norfolk. It is the Groups who organise most of the events and maintain contact with members, colleges and employers in their area.

Groups have to hold an Annual Meeting under the rules of the Institute - after all, it is your subscription which pays for the activities so we need to be democratic and transparent in our work. 

All Branch and Group Committee members are unpaid, acting in an honorary capacity for the benefit of CIPD members and the Institute as a whole. 

Which Meetings and Events should I attend? 

Your local Group runs a varied series of events through the year - you are welcome to attend these, or indeed events run by any other Group. Because of the geography, we do not run any regular Branch events. You can book on any CIPD event, not just those in your Group or Branch, if you are prepared to travel. The website has now been upgraded so you can search for events from this or any other Branch. 

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved at Group or Branch levels: we are always interested in hearing from people who want to contribute some time to developing the Institute (and themselves) by participating in local activities.

We can offer local advice on any matters relating to membership of the institute and events which are scheduled to take place. Further details are published in this area or contact us to find out more.

Branch Annual Meeting

The Branch Annual Meeting will be held at 18:00 on the 2 July at St John's Innovation Centre, Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0WS.  A report of Branch activities and the financial situation over the last 12 months will be presented along with nominations and voting for Branch positions.  This will precede the 'Bullying in the Workplace' event.

Greater Peterborough

Peterborough CIPD Group launches its new Programme

Our new programme for 2015/16 has been published; please look at the events page for the next event. With the Peterborough Group having such a large membership, trying to accommodate everyone’s request is something of a challenge! We believe in offering a balanced mix encompassing the breadth of HR – from employment law to staff engagement. In the current economic climate of increased uncertainty regarding employment, CPD is, perhaps, more important than ever before. We issue CPD Certificates following your attendance at an event. Attendance at these meetings will undoubtedly make a positive contribution in this area for you. In addition, there are the benefits of networking along with opportunities to share information and support fellow members in HR issues.

Events will be circulated via our normal email system, on the CIPD website (your branch – North and Mid Anglia) and will also appear in People Management. Please ensure we have your current email details to keep you up to date with events and that you keep your profile updated on the CIPD website.

As ever, finances are tight. We are budgeting on making events cost effective for you. Therefore in return, please help us with remembering that all events must be pre-booked with payment in advance. As ever CPD certificates will be issued to you after the event.

Are you ‘linked up’ on the Peterborough CIPD LinkedIn page?

As a committee we look forward to seeing you at these events to gain maximum benefit from your membership fee!
