Entry requirements

We welcome applications from talented candidates of all backgrounds and a degree is not always necessary. Each application is considered on its individual merit, taking into account both qualifications and work experience. Usually candidates must have two years’ work experience and hold either:

  • first or a second class UK honours degree in a relevant discipline, or
  • international relevant degree - equivalent of UK qualifications.

Candidates who do not meet these criteria may be considered if they have a professional qualification (e.g. from CIPS, CILT, and APICS) together with relevant work experience.
