People and culture

As an organisation that represents the People Profession, it's vital that our people are the best. Feedback from people who work here consistently tells us that the finest thing about working for the CIPD is, well, our people!

Our work environment

We want our people to feel supported and inspired at the CIPD, whatever their role.

We offer a generous annual 28 days’ holiday (on top of bank holidays) and the ability to work flexibly. Our award-winning pension scheme is available to all, as is access to our Employee Assistance Programme and Financial Well-being Hub.

Everyone's entitled to an annual personal development allowance as well as supported, paid time for volunteering. And with Discovery Hours and Lunch & Learns offering the opportunity to discuss the latest thinking about what’s going on in the business and in the wider world of work, alongside a free, well-balanced lunch and a Cycle2Work scheme, we make sure there is ample opportunity to keep both your brain and body healthy.

Finally, because we know a big part of feeling happy in your job comes from knowing your hard work is being noticed and recognised, we run a recognition scheme to reward and recognise the shining stars of our organisation who really live and breathe our values.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion

To achieve our ambitions, we need a diverse workforce who can offer a range of skills and perspectives. We have a number of thriving colleague networks including LGBT+, ethnic minority representation, well-being, faith, gender and disability. These groups all sit within our Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group, which meets six times per year to share ideas, support one another and give the business their steer on key initiatives.

We are proud to be:

Our location
