Get instant access to resources and support

Affiliate Membership brings you the latest CIPD insights, research, case studies and resources to help you stay up-to-date. It’s ideal if you need help to check you’ve got the right people policies for your organisation.

It also gives you access to our network of almost 160,000 people professionals around the world, so you can share ideas, learn and make decisions about your people practices. 

I'm not a HR specialist. So being able to access the CIPD's online resources is really important for me and my organisation.

This grade is for you if:

  • You’re looking for straightforward access to resources, content, support and CIPD networks.
  • You’ve got people management responsibilities, but you‘re not working directly or full time in HR or L&D. Or you’re already in a senior people role and you want occasional access to CIPD networks.
  • You’re not committed to studying or being assessed for CIPD membership.

Affiliate Membership is not right for everyone. If you’re keen to develop a career in the people profession, and build your professional credibility, Affiliate Membership is probably not right for you. Why not take a look at our other membership grades.
