Career Cafe


Description of Event

The Career Cafe is an informal monthly event to support CIPD members and with their job search and career development. The group offers peer support, networking opportunities and guidance to assist those wanting to move forward in their career. Whether it is entering the profession, finding a new role, changing direction, or simply looking for advice and guidance, the Career Cafe can help.

It is also a great opportunity to develop a mentoring partnership and we regularly invite guest speakers to offer insightful content and a different perspective. The Career Cafe compliments our Mentoring support and the two work together hand in hand.

For those looking to upgrade, our professional development lead is able to offer advice and guidance. They have gone through the process themselves and supported others. As part of the Carers Cafe we run regular sessions to explain the upgrading process
