About Us


Our Agenda

The City HR Association was founded in 1973 as the professional body for HR in organisations and sectors that support the City of London. Our agenda is driven by, and on behalf of, our members but increasingly from other sectors too.

Our Mission

To provide our HR members with the tools, expertise, best practice documents and knowledge-sharing  to support the challenges facing their business.   To represent  member interests at all levels across all disciplines.

“Above all, we act with one voice for our members on people issues.”

Our Geography

Our members are drawn from the City, Canary Wharf, the West End of London and at key regions across the country.

Our Philosophy

We aspire to be the voice for our members on current issues relevant to our profession: the go to place for HR at all levels and the hub to connect HR professionals, experts in the HR community and business leaders.

Our Services

We support our members through lobbying and representation on people issues, contributing to the national HR agenda on generic issues and dedicating specialist resource to people matters which affect the City and financial services.  We do this through market-wide collaboration, commenting on – and – distributing latest government, legal and regulatory mandates and providing thought leadership.

Above all, we facilitate first class networking through sector knowledge sharing activities and special interest groups across all HR disciplines.
