Our work in Wales

There’s no doubt that the impact of the pandemic, Brexit, and now the cost of living crisis has changed the landscape, creating a competitive yet unique job market where flexible and hybrid working and an increased awareness of mental health  are more prominent than ever.  

We're committed to identifying and highlighting untapped talent. We work with individuals, groups and employers to facilitate their inclusion into the job market. We promote and engage with UK-wide CIPD campaigns and initiatives in a way that maximises the impact in a Welsh context.  

The concept is simple:

  • There’s a skills shortage in Wales
  • There’s a pool of untapped talent
  • We have access to employers who would welcome access to these people 
  • We have members who can help and support these people to become a valuable part of the workforce.
