Welcome to our branch
Welcome to Chiltern Branch. We are open to CIPD members based in the Chiltern area as well as local business professionals and anyone interested in championing better working and working lives.
Whether you are a student new to HR, a long-established practitioner, or somewhere in between, we welcome you to join us at our events. We offer you opportunities to network, learn, and share, amongst a diverse group of people, invited speakers, and much more.
If you're a CIPD member visiting from outside the branch area or interested in a particular event, we invite you to join us.
Chiltern Branch endeavours to deliver a variety of events covering a broad range of topics. Our aim is to run events that offer excellent opportunities for every member at every level to maintain up to date practice. If you attend branch meetings and programmed events, we can help you improve your personal and professional skills as well as giving you the chance to engage with other HR professionals for support and networking.
From directors to students, we have established links with businesses in the local area as well as Buckinghamshire New University, a major CIPD course provider.
