The AFL's newest club Greater Western Sydney have stood down head recruiter Neville Stibbard over claims he acted aggressively to a rival club staff member.

GWS confirmed a football department official had been stood down on full pay pending an investigation into complaints lodged by North Melbourne.

The Giants say it is alleged he "acted in an unprofessional and aggressive manner to an employee of another club".

"One of the key priorities for the GWS Giants is to set a strong culture and values system and we take any suggestion of unprofessional behaviour seriously," the club said in a statement.

"The Giants' recruitment and list development strategy remains on track ahead of the upcoming draft."

North Melbourne refused to comment.

The Giants have nine first-round picks in November's national draft as well as being able to add a raft of out-of-contract players from rival clubs.
