Why consider CIPS?

A number of jobseekers consider embarking on a higher education course to enhance their employability; however it's important to research your chosen course and the job market thoroughly before you commit to investing your time and money.

Here are some benefits of obtaining a CIPS qualification and how to leverage it to get you the right role.

What is CIPS?

The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Chain (CIPS) was developed by respected employers and academics to uphold a global standard for procurement by offering practical training courses, workshops and qualifications. This not-for-profit body is the world’s largest procurement and supply chain organisation and exists to promote an industry standard for a network of professionals operating in all sectors around the world.

What are the benefits?

As an internationally recognised qualification, becoming CIPS qualified can give you the edge when trying to find a new job as well as demonstrating a continued commitment to your own professional development, which will help attract potential employers.

Opportunities for international jobseekers

Experienced and qualified professionals in the procurement and supply chain sector are still on the long-term skills shortage list of Immigration New Zealand which is good news for returning qualified Kiwis and those individuals looking to move to the country.

Don’t forget to market yourself

Although having such a highly regarded qualification can increase your employability exponentially, it is important to remember that many employers will be looking for people who can demonstrate they've put theory into practice. A CIPS qualification is a huge advantage but it’s important to market yourself properly and provide evidence of your ability to apply your skills in a practical sense. Make sure you demonstrate this on your CV and be prepared to explain how you’ve used your qualification in a professional capacity at the interview stage.
