unlock your team's talent

Corporate Affiliate is our corporate membership scheme. It's open to in-house teams and PR agencies, and it will do wonders for your credibility, reputation and growth.

By becoming a Corporate Affiliate, you'll be able to recruit and retain the best PR talent out there, and in turn boost your team performance. Plus, your clients, colleagues, and the public will see that you are accountable to a globally-recognised set of professional standards. 

But that's not all. You'll be demonstrating your commitment to being an employer of choice. Corporate Affiliate provides unrivalled professional development opportunities for your team – at every stage of their careers.  It shows them that you’re invested in their growth and development.

With CIPR Corporate Affiliate, your team can improve their knowledge, develop their skills, and perform better than ever before.  

Who can become a corporate member?

  • PR agencies: Whether you're just starting out, growing and looking to expand, or established and seeking to enhance your reputation.
  • In-house teams: Big or small with a group of people working in any PR and communications discipline.
  • Corporate Affiliate membership is open to PR and communications teams with five or more people.
