CIPD Scotland Highlights 2019/20

June marked the end of the CIPD financial year, and it’s a good time to reflect on what has been a busy year for our team in Scotland, COVID-19 withstanding; including welcoming new Scottish team members, our most successful ever CIPD Scotland Annual Conference, expanding our member networks and contributing to several policy consultations and key research into the world of work.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and keeping the health, well-being and safety of our community in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend all face to face events until further notice. However, over the coming months, we have a great variety of online events, webinars and networking opportunities.

Connect with your local branch

Within Scotland there are four CIPD Branches, run by teams of committed and engaged volunteers. Each branch runs a full and varied programme of events and activities for local CIPD members at all stages of their career and professional development. 

Please note: Due to the current coronavirus situation, we have made the decision to postpone or cancel all face to face branch events until the end of June 2020. Some branches will deliver sessions via virtual means and we ask you to check with the individual branch directly regarding their programme of events. Thank you for your support at this time.
