  • Hi Phoebe

    I'll post a link here to a book that many believed was the core text for level 5 for a long time. Although, with the number of resources available on the internet, it's not essential to own this any longer - in my opinion.

    It's a big book and not cheap. You'll get a 20% discount with your CIPD membership, alternatively, there are plenty of previously owned copies for sale in the internet. 

    Here's the link: https://www.koganpage.com/product/human-resource-management-at-work...

    I'm one of the Online Facilitators for Level 5 HRM, so feel free to let me know if you have any questions about Level 5.

    Best wishes,

    Human Resource Management at Work
    Combine the latest academic research with practical approaches to human resource management (HRM) with this definitive textbook.
