CMI's membership community for emerging and practising professionals.
What is CMI Future Leaders?
Future Leaders is CMI's membership community for young people - a group of diverse, ambitious and emerging professionals who are proactively looking to get ahead in their career.
60% of employers expect graduates to have practical management and leadership skills. What they really mean by this is the skills and attributes that complement your technical expertise or subject knowledge — the things that make a great manager or leader, like communication, problem-solving, and negotiation.

Victoria Stace discusses how they’re helping her find her feet with a career in fashion.
My involvement with CMI helped me secure my dream job at Ernst and Young within just a few weeks of finishing university.
ManagementDirect is really useful in my graduate job. I’ve used the resources and templates to structure my work and enhance my project management skills.
CMI’s been invaluable to me — especially the Career Development Centre’s tailored content, to help with job applications in my 3rd year at uni.
