CIPD Branches - networking, insights and professional support

Welcome to the CIPD North East of England Branch

We offer a range of services and events aimed at Human Resource and Development practitioners and the wider business community.

We aim to provide opportunities for learning through an exciting events programme, to raise the profile of the CIPD within the region and to promote best HR&D practice. In addition, for the coming year, we will continue to develop our professional mentoring scheme, deliver further breakfast meetings and increase our use of social media.

Our branch area provides details of our events programme for the year, information on the Awards, contact details and all newsletters and past event presentation slides.

You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
