Why become a Chartered member?

We have improved our Chartered membership application process with two clear routes for application; either through your qualifications or via your extensive experience.

Chartered membership status allows payroll, pensions and reward professionals to demonstrate their strategic value, experience and knowledge to their organisation and the wider profession. Becoming a Chartered member recognises your commitment to the CIPP’s values, compliance, and best practice.

The Queen’s Privy Council has granted the CIPP the ability to award this unique membership level as part of the Charter of the Institute.

Applications are open to members and non-members of the Institute.

If you are able to demonstrate:

  • extensive experience at a strategic level matching the goals of your organisation
  • been involved in budget and project management and planning
  • evidence management skills within your career
  • and want to be an ambassador for the industry and CIPP
  • are able to evidence a minimum of 40 CPD points per subscription year*

you may meet the necessary criteria required.
