About CIPFA members

CIPFA is the leading accountancy body for public services, whether in the public or private sectors. Many members occupy positions of influence in local authorities, NHS trusts, central government, housing, education, water, electricity and gas companies and private sector organisations such as Nationwide Building Society, IBM, Marks & Spencer and the World Bank. CIPFA members are also employed by all the top accounting firms.

Whilst most CIPFA members are employed, some are in practice providing accountancy services to the public. These members are required to hold a Practising Certificate and be registered in CIPFA's Practice Assurance Scheme. These members may be listed in the Members in Practice directory although they choose whether to opt into the directory and what contact information is disclosed.
