Welcome to our branch area

Our branch is building a community fit for the future here in Lincolnshire, for members and the profession, and our strategic priorities to achieve this are:

  • Growing expertise of people professionals together and sharing knowledge
  • Demonstrating the value of CIPD membership to individuals and organisations
  • Actively listening to identify needs
  • Communicating to have impact
  • Running the branch effectively and efficiently

We do this through a range of branch activities which are open to our 1,400+ members and, in most cases, non-members. These are opportunities to network with other like-minded individuals to continue professional development and remain up to date with evolving HR issues through events and newsletters, as well as our branch mentoring scheme. Whatever level of involvement you want to have, we have no doubt you will find it both valuable and enjoyable.

The branch committee works hard to provide a diverse schedule of events, enabling us all to share the benefit and expertise of a range of high-profile speakers and leaders in our profession. Our events year runs from September through to July and Eventbrite links to upcoming events are available in the section below which is updated on a regular basis.

If you would like to get involved with the branch, by joining the committee, offering us a venue for events, suggesting event topics or articles for our newsletter then please do get in touch with me or any of the committee members. You can sign up for branch events either via the webpage or by searching Eventbrite. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Learn about our branch

Lincolnshire branch is run by a committee of volunteers who devise and run the annual programme of events running from September to July. We're fortunate to be supported by local organisations, universities and colleges so most of these events will take place on supporters’ premises.

We also schedule a number of topical webinars which can be booked via Eventbrite so please look out for these and join in.

Get involved

The branch has a lively, passionate and dedicated group of volunteers and welcomes applications from CIPD members to continue developing the branch, to raise our profile locally and help deliver a diverse range of events for our members in line with our vision and strategic priorities.

Whatever role you might be considering, there are some basic asks that we have of you. These include adopting our committee ground rules first and foremost. These are:

  • Having clear roles and responsibilities that we hold each other to account for

  • Having a focused approach to the service we're offering and providing

  • Being open, transparent and communicate appropriately with each other

  • Giving and receiving timely, constructive feedback and challenge to each other

  • Ensuring everyone feels included, valued and respected

  • Having some fun and developing together

  • Active participation – if we say we'll do something, we do it

In terms of the time commitment, committee members are expected to be able to provide between one and three hours of volunteering time per week dependent on their role and where we are in the programme calendar. This includes attending committee meetings which take place every six weeks, taking a lead on delivering a specific element of our business plan and taking on the role of 'host' at our events looking after our guest speaker and opening/closing the meeting at least once a year.

If you are interested in finding out more, come along to one of our events and speak with one of our committee members or get in touch via email. There will either be opportunities available immediately, or we may ask you to join our waiting list so that we can contact you when a role becomes available that matches your skills. Either way, we will ask you to complete a short application form so that we can find out more about you and the skills you have to offer.

Mentoring scheme

Welcome to the Lincolnshire Branch Member‐to‐Member Mentoring Scheme. The mentoring scheme offers a great opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills particularly through the support by a like‐minded but more experienced colleague over a period of approximately six months.

The primary purpose of our volunteer‐led scheme is to offer mentoring support to all our members whatever stage they are at in their career and whatever their level of CIPD membership. It also provides those who are more experienced (mentor) with a great opportunity to be instrumental in the career transition and/or transformation of a less experienced colleague (mentee) helping to unleash their untapped potential.

For Mentors:

If you are an experienced HR, OD and/or L&D professional and are interested in becoming one of our volunteer mentors, we would like to hear from you. The scheme offers a free Mentoring Masterclass and other mentoring CPD opportunities as well as continuous support to help you in your role as mentor. If you are interested in joining our scheme as a mentor please complete and submit the Mentor Registration form below.

For Mentees:

If you are currently studying towards becoming CIPD qualified or if you are an experienced HR, OD and/or L&D practitioner already, but would like to develop your skills further, the mentoring scheme is aiming to connect you with those members who can offer you support and guidance based on their experience. If you are interested in being mentored please complete and submit the Mentee Registration form below.

Details about our forthcoming Mentoring Masterclass will be launched on our events page soon. Further information about our scheme is available below.
