Does a CIPD qualification set you apart?
Although a CIPD qualification isn’t always requested by employers, there are always some hiring managers who include it as a prerequisite on their job specs and adverts. If you already have an HR-related degree or extensive industry experience, the CIPD may be less of a necessity – but it's a well respected qualification that could open doors when looking for a new HR role. Particularly if you’re looking to get into HR from another business function, CIPD training could be a worthwhile step to take.
A CIPD qualification can ensure specialist knowledge of the latest theory and a good level of insight into best practice in HR and development. With this in mind, many employers will typically hold a fully CIPD-qualified candidate in high regard when looking to fill a role.
