Volunteering

Use your experience as a HR or L&D professional to make an impact on our community and wider society by volunteering for one of the exciting programmes supported by the CIPD.

Volunteering can be a short-term, one-off activity such as helping an individual with their CV, or a regular, longer-term activity that fits around your working life, such as mentoring a young person.

This is your chance to make a positive difference whilst developing skills that will help with your own career journey. Visit the CIPD volunteering section for more information.

Careers clinic

The Careers Clinic forum has been created for the purpose of connecting those with questions about their career to experienced HR and L&D professionals who offer advice and guidance from their own experiences.

So whether you have a burning question, or would simply like to help someone in their career, visit the Careers Clinic in our online community.

Networking

There are so many ways for you to get involved, locally, regionally and nationally, whether that's through attending conferences and exhibitions , getting involved with your local branch or joining a special interest group.

Importance of CPD

Career development is impossible without having a commitment to continuous learning and growth. Not only will you be more aware and able to act upon opportunities, but your marketability will improve, as you're able to easily demonstrate your adaptability, credibility and commitment to growth to prospective employers.
