The Management Entry Route (MER) is designed for procurement professionals who are already operating in a senior strategic role within procurement or supply chain management with extensive on-the-job experience.
You will be assessed for your experience, knowledge and responsibility through an online questionnaire and a telephone interview. It is a robust, rigorous and transparent process designed for senior professionals in upper management roles, usually with at least five years’ experience at a strategic level. Please note that applications are also accepted from professionals with the relevant experience who may currently be between roles.
The first step to starting MER is to join CIPS as an Affiliate Member.
