SOLIDARITY OCCUPATIONAL GUILD FOR OFFICE PRACTITIONERS The Occupational Guild for Office Practitioners is your partner on your career path to achieve mastership in the office and administrative environment.

Office practitioners often feel that they are not valued suffuciently, but they play a critical role in the day-to-day operations of any organisation. It is now time for every office practitioner to personally take the responsibility to become part of a community where they are understood, share knowledge, expand their skills and knowledge, and to develop to their full potential as a specialist in the profession.

We understand that office practitioners face unique challenges, they work under pressure and they must have a wide variety of information, knowledge, and skills. Therefore, the Solidarity Occupational Guild for Office Practitioners offers you the perfect platform for network opportunities in your profession.
