As a CIPD member you have access to a wide range of benefits. 

Depending on your role, you might find some of the benefits more beneficial than others.  One of the areas that we’re really passionate about in the North East is supporting our members with professional development. Your CIPD membership can help:

Knowledge Hub

You have access to research, factsheets, podcasts and 200 business and HR/L&D journals.  You can explore the knowledge hub here.

Your local branch

You’re connected to us and we want to support you in providing CPD opportunities which interest and inspire you.  Please let us know what you would like to see in our events programme.


Use My CPD map to self-assess your knowledge, skills and behaviours and general a personal development report to support your CPD plan for the next 12 months +.  You can complete this at regular intervals to track your process and support you towards upgrading your membership.


There are many ways that you can get involved – take a look at our volunteering tab for more inspiration.

Career hub

You have access to a vast array of information, tools and advice to support you through your career.

Off work or returning to work?

As a member, you may be eligible for reduced membership fees, and there are also available resources to support you back into work
