My name is Paul Strickland and I have worked in Human Resources and been a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and its previous incarnation (IPD) since 1997.(Former Licentiate member – part qualified) having completed year one of the Professional Development Scheme (Post Graduate Level 7 Certificate level), I have also completed the CIPD Certificate in Training Practice.
I’ve been a committee member of the Bedfordshire & Milton Keynes CIPD branch since May 2012 and I am currently looking after the social media output of the branch.
As a CIPD member, I maintain regular CPD activity and keep my skills up to date.
My achievements include successfully bringing projects in on time or earlier, several instances of implementing cost savings without causing a detriment to the level of service provided by the department.
My core strengths include my ability to diagnose and resolve problems, my skills with planning, organising, and my ability to work well within diverse teams. Through my work and studies, I have developed a strong sense of commercial awareness.
Over the years I have worked for a variety of employers in private, public and third sectors.
