Welcome to our branch area
Welcome to the CIPD Coventry and Warwickshire Branch. We're an active branch with around 2,500 members living and working in the area. Whether you’re a member, non-member working in the people profession or a business leader, we believe you can benefit most from your membership by being actively involved with the branch activities.
With our geography at the heart of the Midlands we especially welcome members from surrounding areas who find it easy to attend our events.
We run a full range of different types of event covering a breadth of topics which people in HR and L&D want to learn more about. We also have a thriving special interest group for self employed and sole practitioners. We're also flexible enough to welcome ideas from all our members for different types of events or new topics – if there is something you would like to see, please get in touch.

Learn about our branch
The Coventry and Warwickshire Branch provides a welcoming community for HR, L&D and OD professionals living and working in the city of Coventry or the surrounding country of Warwickshire. Whatever your professional needs and interests we're here to support you.
The branch is also an active member of the Midlands Area Partnership (MAP), working collaboratively with other local branches in the region to develop member events, conferences and CPD opportunities.
The branch is run by a committee of local volunteer members who are keen to hear from you! So please contact us for more information about how you can get involved and make a difference in the people profession.
The branch runs a local mentoring scheme for CIPD members and is looking for new mentors and mentees to take part.
Whether you would like to increase your skills by mentoring a HR student or professional, or whether you wish to benefit from the skills and expertise of being mentored by peer or senior HR professional, we can provide the forum, support and guidance for this to happen.
For more information and a copy of the mentoring application form, please contact the CIPD Coventry and Warwickshire Mentoring Co-ordinator Judi McSweeney.
