As a CIPD member you may need to prove that you are a member of the CIPD to current or prospective employers, to clients or when attending events. We want to provide you with an easy way to do that.

We're moving to more sustainable ways to demonstrate membership: in 2019 we were one of the first membership organisations to move to a 100% plastic-free membership card, made from FSC accredited cardboard that is 100% recyclable and compostable. We also launched a digital card on the CIPD Community app. We're exploring other solutions for the future, such as digital badging.

Get your digital membership card

The most sustainable way to demonstrate proof of membership is to use your digital membership card, which you'll find on the CIPD Community app.

You can download the app from the Apple App store and Google Play store:

Get it on Google Play

Log into the app using the same email address and password as your CIPD online account. Once in the app, you can access your digital membership card by clicking on the top left menu bars and selecting 'Membership Card'.


Request a physical membership card

If you do still require a physical membership card or a membership certificate, you can request one by calling our Customer Services team on +44 (0)20 8612 6242.

Locate your membership number

In order to receive member discounts on CIPD training, events or publications you will be asked for your membership number. This can be easily found by logging into MyProfile. Your membership number is available in the top right-hand corner.

Verify a CIPD Member

If you are a recruiter, employer or client looking for verification of someone’s CIPD membership status you can now search quickly and easily online to confirm that someone is in active membership in the current membership year.

To search, you must know the member’s surname and full CIPD membership number. If you have a question about this, please contact our Customer Services team on +44 (0)20 8612 6208.
