Welcome to our branch
Welcome to Shropshire Branch. We are here to support all our HR, Learning & Development and Organisational Development members, as well as those studying for a CIPD qualification.
Please come along and take part in our events, not just for your continuous professional development, but to network with a diverse group of people who all want to champion better work and working lives.
Each year we provide a varied programme of events and webinars to educate, encourage and enthuse our members. We are building on the success of our recent mix of events and will focus on the knowledge and behaviours needed to create value and impact in the people profession. We encourage feedback and comments on our programme, to ensure we continue to meet your needs and interests.

Our members rate their access to a local branch in their top three membership benefits. Come along to our branch events to discover other CIPD benefits. Explore the issues and trends impacting our profession. Network, learn and share ideas with people professionals in our area.
Our branch events and webinars are available to view and book on Eventbrite. We publicise our programme of activities via branch newsletters and on our LinkedIn group page, so please do interact with us and keep in touch. Our branch events are free to CIPD members.
We also maintain strong links with the other CIPD branches in the Midlands, which gives our CIPD members access to further regional events and opportunities to network with members from other neighbouring branches. In addition, we have been building strong links with providers of CIPD-accredited courses in Shropshire, including local colleges and universities.
CIPD Shropshire is run by a volunteer committee of enthusiastic HR, L&D and OD practitioners and student members and supported by a team from the CIPD head office. Committee members are directly involved with the planning and running of branch events, giving them great opportunities to collaborate with others, develop new skills and keep updated with CIPD good practice and current guidance.
If you would like to learn more about the committee and any current volunteer vacancies, please come and have a chat with us at our next event where committee members can be identified by their rainbow lanyards, or email us.

We have an established and popular special interest group (SIG) which meets several times a year to discuss and explore relevant employment law topics and issues. We are very fortunate to have these sessions hosted by an experienced and knowledgeable barrister, giving important legal context and interpretation of recent case law.
Get in touch to find out more. And let us know your ideas for other special interest groups.
