Welcome to our branch area
Thank you for visiting the North Staffordshire and South Cheshire Branch page. We serve over 1,400 members, and our volunteer committee creates local opportunities for CPD and networking with other local members.
As the Chair of the CIPD North Staffordshire and South Cheshire branch, I’m delighted to tell you that my fellow committee members are continually developing and sourcing an exciting series of events, to promote member and potential member engagement in the geographical area assigned to the branch.
Our ethos is that by Championing Better Work and Working Lives, we can support you in your everyday role, and help you further your career, both though CPD, and by networking with other people professionals in our area.

Learn about our branch
We cover a wide geographical area, which has a broad mix of employment, and therefore, HR professionals at all levels, within our catchment. This enables learning and networking in a dynamic environment.
We run a regular programme of events designed to cover all aspects of the CIPD’s strategic priorities, to build capability and engagement amongst our members.
In common with all CIPD branches all our events will be virtual until at least the end of 2020 but during more normal times we have run particularly successful events around CIPD membership benefits and progression and our ever-popular site visits, and we offer a mentoring scheme for members of all levels to engage in.
We are active participants in the CIPD Midlands area partnership, working collaboratively with other branches in our region to run conferences, and other learning opportunities for our members.
We're looking for volunteers to join the branch committee, to help us take the branch forward, to raise our profile locally, and to help us deliver an interactive programme of events that is tailored to our members’ needs.
If you would like to know more, or get involved, please email the branch so you can have a chat with a committee member.
We offer mentoring support by providing tailored events and one to one points of contact for all branch members. We have a Branch Mentoring Lead who also works for the Investors In People (IIP) awarding body and is able to respond to requests and any specific needs from branch members.
CIPD Midlands aims to promote the CIPD purpose throughout the Midlands region by sharing best practice, improving links between the individual branches and providing networking opportunities for all our members. We are also a part of the Midlands Area Partnership (MAP), a regional group of ten branches in the Midlands area which combine to cover 20,000 CIPD members.
