West of Scotland Branch

CIPD Branches - networking, insights and professional support

Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the West of Scotland Branch. 

On this site you will find details of our forthcoming events, links to topical news, related websites and from time to time we will post items of current local and national interest. 

The West of Scotland Branch forms part of CIPD Scotland, along with three other Scottish Branches. 

The branch consists of volunteers whose professional experience encompasses all areas of expertise across the private, public and voluntary sectors, providing the branch with a strong people network and a varying range of skill sets. Elected annually by our members, our volunteers bring a wealth of talent and diversity to the West of Scotland Branch. 

The branch provides a regular newsletter and an annual programme of events to appeal to the broad range of interests of our members in the West of Scotland. The events are to provide relevant and interesting CIPD experience and an opportunity to meet and network with HRD professionals from a wide range of organisations. 

We want to actively engage all our members in our branch activities and to make their experience both valuable and enjoyable by attending events, contributing to newsletters, getting involved with CIPD Policy Consultation and by following us on social media. 

As part of the branch commitment to engage with all our members, we currently have 3 Special Interest Groups (SIGS) and an Events Planning Group which any member can participate in:

  • Voluntary Sector Group
  • Public Sector Group
  • Ayrshire Group
  • Events Planning Group

Feel free to send us your comments and feedback about the branch, events or anything concerned with your branch, by contacting a member of the committee via the contacts page or by leaving a comment on our Social media groups. 

We look forward to hearing from you, and don’t forget to join us on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
