Rural Payments and Inspections Division - Communications

The Rural Payments and Inspections Division (RPID) Communications team aims to communicate effectively with our rural stakeholders. Rural Payments and Inspections Division has around 600 staff in 17 area offices throughout Scotland doing a variety of jobs - some in the office covering administration and developing policy, to others out in the field updating maps or conducting inspections.

Every two weeks we post a ‘Wee Chat’ on our Rural Matters Facebook page with various people involved in the rural industry, including our staff. We are aiming to inform people about the breadth of work RPID is responsible for, and the commitment our staff show.
