I am an HR professional in my own mind. I have been in an HR role for 11 years, this role has developed from basic admin for about 100 employees to a full HR advisor/administrator covering a national role for 2500 employees.

Unfortunately for me i have never ‘had the time’ to complete a qualification in HR. I am finding that this extremely restricts access to HR roles in other companies and i was wondering how other feel about the importance of passing a qualification? Is it the main thing you look for in an applicant?

I look forward to hearing the views of my fellow professionals!!
