If you live and/or work in the eastern or western reaches of Sussex we know that it may not always be possible for you to attend mid-week evening events in Brighton or mid-Sussex. So if you like your networking with even more of a local feel you can now come along to meetings in Chichester or Hastings.
The aim is to provide an opportunity for making connections, sharing ideas and meeting up with other HR professionals in and around these towns. SarahHarvey will co-ordinate the Chichester Group in the West and Derek Osborn will co-ordinate the Hastings Group in the East.
The format will be less formal than Branch events with greater focus on local networking, providing an opportunity to get to know people better and debate important issues. We will mix things up according to what each of the groups would like and will also include guest speakers, facilitated discussions, practical knowledge sharing and learning.
The University of Chichester is delighted to be working in partnership with CIPD Sussex and has sponsored the rooms and refreshments for this event. Please note that tea/coffee/water and biscuits will be provided for this meeting.
Parking - drive through the campus on the only road and car parking is at the rear of the campus. Walk back to the main reception and report to main reception (the Support and Information Zone - SIZ) where you will be escorted to the room.
This event is free of charge for CIPD members, although booking is essential. There is a charge of £25 for non-members. (please note that refunds will not be issued less than 10 days prior to this event).
Professional photography and video production may be taking place at the event, and these images may be used on future promotional materials for CIPD. Please note that by attending the event, you are giving your consent for your image to be used on any CIPD promotional materials.
