1. Grab the attention of leading employers
MCIPS status offers you a vast array of opportunities with some of the leading employers in the profession. A CIPS whitepaper, Measuring the Benefits of how CIPS qualified members will add value to your organisation found that 61% of recruiters are prioritising MCIPS candidates over non-members, meaning that your qualification bumps your application up the pile.
2. Increase your earning potential
CIPS membership will not only fast-track your CV to the hiring manager’s attention, it will also bulk out your pay packet. The CIPS report found that CIPS graduates earned, on average, 17% more over the last five years than those who have not achieved a qualification.
Plus, the importance of procurement to the business is beginning to be realised with a CIPS report discovering that salaries have increased by 5.1% compared to the national average of 2.2%.
