Your trusted resource in the fast-changing world of work

Open to all, Affiliate membership is a non-professional level of membership. It’s ideal if you need immediate access to CIPD resources to help you in your role, and can support your personal and professional development.

Affiliate membership is a great choice if you are:
  • In a non-HR or L&D role with people management or development responsibilities.
  • Seeking the latest HR and L&D resources to ensure you and your organisation stay up to date with the fast-changing world of HR and employment law.
  • Wanting to socialise, discuss and learn from an interested and supportive community of professionals.
