CIOB joins Professions for Good

The Chartered Institute of Building has joined Professions for Good – a collaboration of the country’s leading professional organisations, representing over 1.2 million professionally qualified individuals.

The CIOB joins organisations such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) and the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) in Professions for Good, which was founded as an umbrella group to promote the value the professions bring to British society and the economy. It also works to uphold the principles of integrity and trust, and campaigns to encourage greater social mobility in the professions’ recruitment policies.

Michael Brown, Deputy Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Building said:“At a time when so many of our revered institutions have been under attack and discredited, Professions for Good is able to take a lead in promoting our public benefit role and the value we add through our professional members to society internationally.  The CIOB is proud to be part of this movement.”

Louis Armstrong CBE, Chairman of Professions for Good, added: “The professions are a major UK success story, widely respected throughout the world, but at best we take the integrity, expertise and trust of our professional experts for granted. At worst, we hold up one-off examples of malpractice as evidence that morality and ethics have deserted the professions entirely.

“The CIOB’s membership represents an unequalled body of knowledge concerning the management of the total building process. At a time when the UK government is looking to the construction sector as one of the major drivers to give the economy a lift we are delighted Professions for Good can benefit from CIOB’s involvement to turn the spotlight on the value of the professions to the UK economy as well.”
