CIPR moving to new London premises

The CIPR has negotiated an agreement with its landlord, Bedford Estates, which allows the Institute to depart from its Russell Square office ahead of the expiry of its lease in January 2019. 

The CIPR will move to new premises at 85 Tottenham Court Road, W1T 4TQ on Thursday 25 October.

Alastair McCapra, CIPR Chief Executive
This move will reduce our operating costs by around £250,000 per year, enabling us to spend more in future on the activities which drive our mission and purpose.

Sarah Hall Chart.PR, FCIPR, CIPR President
Moving from Russell Square reflects a real moment in time for the Institute. It will deliver better value to members enabling us to double down investment in our membership offer. Our new offices will better reflect the modern, forward-looking CIPR of today.
 
My thanks to the CIPR team who have delivered an incredibly ambitious plan during our 70th anniversary year while being primed for a relocation.
Sarah Hall Chart.PR, FCIPR, CIPR President

‚ÄčThe new address is a serviced office and the CIPR has signed an agreement to remain there for one year. During this period no members’ room or library service will be available.

CIPR telephones will not operate on Thursday 25 October but normal service should be restored on Friday 26 October. There may be minor delays in responding to online enquiries during this period, but for the most part there will be no interruption of service to members and customers. Please email info@cipr.co.uk or tweet CIPR_UK for any urgent enquiries during this period.
