Welcome to CIPD Wales
At CIPD Wales we work to achieve our goal of establishing the voice of CIPD in Wales and for Wales. Working collaboratively with our 5000 members, our volunteers, and stakeholders - including government, employers and other professional bodies - we have crafted a unique position for ourselves as experts in policy and practice issues.
Maintaining a sustainable pan-Wales structure is important to us. That is why we keep our members, their experiences, and their challenges at the heart of what we do. Our many and varied events provide opportunities for us to collect and share valuable insight, enabling us to play our part in championing better work and working lives across Wales.
Lesley Richards - Head of CIPD Wales
Lesley has had a long involvement with the CIPD, having joined the South East Wales branch as a student member and holding a number of branch roles before chairing the branch for three years, and progressing discussions which ultimately led to the creation of CIPD Wales. As Head of CIPD Wales, her role encompasses three main drivers - influencing policy, building partnerships, delivering for members - all aligned to the overall objective of representing the voice of CIPD in Wales and for Wales.
