Harriet Buckley - People Capability Manager, Tesco

CIPD membership really helps me with the current people strategy role I do, which is developing and driving our strategy across the group.

Emily Griffiths - Chartered MCIPD, People Strategy Manager, Tesco

The CIPD was always on the career bucket list, as they say. HR fascinates me and I think it's really important to be seen and recognised as a competent HR manager - and to be able to back that up with credibility, the knowledge and the skills that come from it.

Gemma Lillywhite - Project Manager, Colleague Privacy, Tesco

I'd recommend Experience Assessment without a shadow of doubt. You get time to reflect and time to really think about the future and how you'd apply some of your learnings and feedback. And it gives you credibility.

James Goodman - Former HR Director, Tesco
