Welcome to our branch area

As Chair of the Humber Branch, I am delighted to welcome you to our Humber branch webpage. You can find details of your branch committee below. We are always delighted in welcoming anyone interested in getting involved in our branch activities, either as a one off or on a more regular basis.

Please email humber@cipdbranch.co.uk if you are interested in having a chat about this.

2020 proved to be a year like no other. We began it with many challenges for the Humber, including Brexit implications, skills shortages (including in areas of growth) and the challenges of the economic climate. And then we faced a pandemic. That said, what a great time to be involved in the people profession within the Humber region! Our profession is key to realising the potential of our region to find, retain, reward and develop the talent which will make us successful.

I encourage you to get involved in any way you can, including attending our branch events (detailed below and currently all held virtually), where you can chat to any of our committee members and make suggestions on how we can make your branch even more effective. Please also keep in touch with us via social media, including: LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

Finally, I look forward to speaking to you at one of our next CIPD Humber Branch events, whether it is the first time you attend, or you are one of our regular supporters.

Phil Quinn, Chartered FCIPD
Branch Chair

Mentoring scheme

The Humber Branch Mentoring Scheme aims to help CIPD students and practitioners (mentees) to develop their personal and professional competencies through mentoring provided by more experienced HR practitioners (mentors).  Mentoring is an arrangement in which an experienced individual (mentor) offers ongoing support and guidance to a less experienced individual (mentee) to help the mentee manage his or her own learning and career development. 

Mentoring can focus on several different areas:  to explore latent abilities, to provide knowledge and skills as opportunities and needs arise, for the mentor to serve as a critical friend who enables the mentee to sharpen skills and hone their thinking. Mentoring can be especially beneficial during career transition. 

This member-to-member mentoring scheme is volunteer-led.

We aim to link HR & L&D professionals with the distinct purpose of enabling the mentee to: develop themselves; better meet work challenges; develop strengths and competencies; learn from example and mistakes; and gain knowledge and more experience.

The mentor will also benefit from our scheme by: gaining satisfaction from nurturing and enabling an individual to develop; helping to unleash untapped potential; being instrumental in career transition and/or transformation, and developing their own skills and CPD.

If you want to consider being mentored or have some time to offer to become a branch mentor, with training and support available, please get in touch.
