CIPD membership really helps me with the current people strategy role I do, which is developing and driving our strategy across the group

Emily Griffiths, Chartered MCIPD, People Strategy Manager, Tesco

The CIPD was always on my career bucket list, as they say. HR fascinates me and I think it’s really important to be seen and recognised as a competent HR manager – and to be able to back that up with the credibility, the knowledge and the skills that come from it

Gemma Lillywhite, Project Manager, Colleague Data Privacy, Tesco

I’d recommend Experience Assessment without a shadow of a doubt. You get time to reflect and time to really think about the future and how you’d apply some of your learnings and feedback. And it gives you credibility.

James Goodman, former HR Director, Tesco
