Welcome to Swindon and North Wiltshire CIPD Branch. We are a very busy branch with an active SEN (Self Employed Network) group as well, covering a broad variety of topics.

I am delighted to be Chair of the Branch for the next year or two and hope to continue the development of the Branch activities to be accessible and useful to as many members and potential members as possible.

If you haven’t attended any of the Branch activities please do give them a try, they are well attended and there is always an opportunity to network as well as the actual event itself.

If you would like to get involved please get in touch, you will be very welcome. We are always planning new activities within the Branch to make your membership more useful to you, and if you have ideas of how we can develop please let me know.

Best wishes

Sarah Archer 
Branch Chair

We have a special interest group dedicated to the specific needs of self-employed members (SEN) in the area and those working in small businesses or as independents. They provide an invaluable support network and run targeted events.

SEN events are designed to be of particular interest to those who are self employed, but all CIPD members are most welcome to attend these events.
