Grade descriptions

Chartered Member

Chartered Membership is our most popular membership grade and it brings with it many benefits, including the right to use MCIOB as a post-nominal designation. Chartered Members also recieve access to over 500 events every year, free CPD resources from the Academy, and access to our Library Information Service.


The Fellowship Grade is the highest award offered by the CIOB. Fellows are amongst the most experienced and knowledgeable professionals in the industry and the highly sought after post-nominal designation, FCIOB, is proof of this. Fellowship also brings benefits such as career progression, promotion, higher salaries and a wider range of job opportunities. 


Student membership is our entry point into membership for those who are either studying full-time or part-time. Student membership gives you access to a wealth of resources to support you in your transition to a worthwhile career in construction.
