North East

At the North East branch, we are dedicated to promoting CICM in our region, which spans from Northumberland to Teesside. The committee members come from diverse backgrounds in sectors such as Manufacturing, Education, Motor trade, Legal, Insolvency, Training, and Recruitment. Our goal is to help both current CICM members and interested individuals make the most of the services and benefits offered by CICM.

Our branch events are typically free and encompass professional and enjoyable social activities. We continuously seek ways to enhance and expand our branch, ensuring that there is something for everyone and we especially encourage young credit professionals starting their careers to join us! Attending our meetings provides a significant advantage of being a member of the Chartered Institute. Additionally, many of our branch events offer CPD hours that can be added to your personal development plan.

We welcome your ideas and input. You can reach out to us at our regular events or contact us anytime. We are excited to connect with you!
