Supporting your Professional Journey

What is Tomorrow's Leaders?
Tomorrow's Leaders is a cross-membership community within the CIOB. It focuses on building professionalism and enhancing the pipeline of high-quality construction talent.
Our mission is to support the uptake of professional standards as an early career achievement through Chartered membership.
Our vision is to improve the pipeline of experts both going into and going through the profession, and so enhancing expertise within the industry.
Our activities empower, influence, shape and support our community members at every career stage through specialised networks and resources to share expertise and enhance knowledge.
