The CIPR is undergoing a major organisational restructure as part of its plan to improve the body's performance.

PRWeek has seen a leaked copy of a CIPR internal ‘recommendations and next steps’ document dated 18 March, which proposes new appointments to its senior team. 

The news comes after it was revealed in November that the CIPR made a loss of £700,000 last year.

The new structure will be refocused around four areas: corporate services; professional development and membership; profession and policy, and commercial.

The plans will be presented to the CIPR Council at the next meeting on 26 April.

If the plan is approved, the CIPR will ‘identify what posts we need in support of the new structure and the development of person specifications / job descriptions for these posts'.

Once this is done, a senior team will be appointed.

CIPR 2011 president elect Paul Mylrea said: ‘We’re not starting with a number of employees and working back. We’re starting at the right structure and building it out. We have no plans on numbers. We can’t tell you how many staff there will be at the CIPR.’
