Welcome to our branch

A very warm welcome to our branch page and thank you for your interest in being part of the small but vibrant community of people professionals we are creating locally.

We're an active branch with approximately 200 members. Whether you’re an existing or potential member or a business leader, we believe you can benefit by participating in our branch activities. This may be through attending local events, subscribing to our newsletter, participating in our online discussions, or partnering and supporting our activities.

The primary purpose of our CIPD Branch in Guernsey is to act as a channel for member and potential member engagement at a local level, following the CIPD’s strategic priorities, and supporting the unique needs of the Bailiwick and the wider Channel Islands.

If you're a CIPD member, you can even join our branch committee if you would like to have direct involvement in running the branch.

our events

Our members rate their access to a local branch in their top three membership benefits. Come along to our branch events to discover other CIPD benefits. Explore the issues and trends impacting our profession. Network, learn and share ideas with people professionals in our area. 

We sometimes deliver activities in conjunction with Jersey branch.

Get involved

We Champion Better Work and Working Lives by organising events with locally based businesses. Highlights include working with local employment lawyers to provide insightful updates on changes to local legislation, and similarly with locally-based pension providers for pension updates. We share regular news bulletins via email that give our members up-to-date information, links and food for thought.

We run a Guernsey mentoring scheme so contact us to get involved as a mentee or mentor.  

We're often looking for volunteers to join the branch committee and help us to take the branch forward; to raise our profile locally and help deliver a diverse range of events for our members. If you're interested in expanding your network and sharing your skills with us, find out more by contacting a committee member directly or via our social media channels, or join one of our events and drop a note in the chat. Currently, many of our activities are online. We plan an annual calendar of activities and look forward to making them a success together.
