West Yorkshire Branch

CIPD Branches - networking, insights and professional support

Welcome from the Chair

2014/2015 was a busy year and saw our most popular Annual Meeting to date in mid-May. 

We are now busy planning our 2015/2016 events calendar using an exciting new medium – Eventbrite. This is a much more sophisticated event management system which will even allow us to “check-in” using a smart phone! 

Please go to our events page for details of our events and remember to book early as they are increasingly popular! 

And don't forget.... If you would like to increase your skills by mentoring a HR student or professional, or you wish to benefit from the skills and expertise of being mentored by peer or senior HR professional, we can provide the forum, support and guidance for this to happen. 

For more information please contact us or you can download a Mentoring Application Form and a Mentoring Information Pack

Through this website you are able to access details of forthcoming events at Group and Branch level, read committee member profiles and make contact with them via e-mail. Email addresses for committee members are on our Contact Us page. 

We are keen to engage with all our members and welcome suggestions and comments on our programme; guest speakers are always appreciated too. 

Additionally we are always looking for new Branch and Group committee members so if you would like to find out what is involved and contribute to the work of the Branch, please do get in touch. 

Finally, I would like to say thank you to the hardworking Branch and Group Committee members who have contributed and give their time so readily. It is through their commitment that we are able to provide such a full range of member services.

About us

The West Yorkshire Branch currently has over 3500 members and is split into three geographical Groups - Bradford Group, Huddersfield Group and Leeds Group. Each group organises its own meetings and has its own sub committee.

From September to July the Branch organises a programme of events on a variety of topics. Details of the meetings are available on this site on the Events Page. A number of seminars are also held through the year which have previously proved extremely successful. Please click to the Events Page for details about the seminars.

The meetings and seminars are usually held at a variety of locations as the branch covers a large geographical area.
