Welcome to the Sussex Branch website. We hope you will find what you are looking for here - if not, please do get in touch and we will do our best to help.
Covering both East and West Sussex, the Sussex Branch spans a large geographic area, so we aim to offer events in a range of locations so that you can find something near to where you live or work. The majority of our members are based in the Brighton and Horsham/Crawley areas, so naturally the majority of our meetings are held there, but we do also try to get to the east and west of the area as much as we can.
Many hundreds of members already come along to our Branch events and special interest forums throughout the year. If you haven't been along for some time, or perhaps not at all, do give us a try; you will receive a warm and friendly welcome, an opportunity to network with other professionals over a sandwich and a drink and to learn something new at the same time. Why wouldn't you want to make use of such a great value, local resource?
Your Branch committee is run by members just like you, all unpaid volunteers, passionate about making sure CIPD is here for you in Sussex throughout your professional journey, be it facilitating local networking opportunities, organising great value CPD (continuing professional development) or enabling the sharing of knowledge and experience with fellow professionals. Don't forget though, it's not all about face to face meetings. Do get involved with discussions on our LinkedIn group too. Here you will find over 1000 other members you can get to know, as well as posts on updates to events, details about HR jobs in Sussex and new meeting dates for our forums and networks as they are arranged. This is also a great way to seek the advice of fellow members when you have a tricky issue to tackle - do tap into the collective knowledge and experience available within the group!
We look forward to welcoming you along to one or more of our activities soon and if you would like to make contact in the meantime please do!
With warm wishes,
Sussex Branch Chair
