What is graduate membership (GAHRI)?
Graduate membership is a professional-level membership offered to support recent HR graduates in the first two years of their HR career. Graduate members receive all the professional level benefits at a subsidised rate including AHRI ProCover insurance and full access to member resources, development programs and networking opportunities to help you build a successful HR career. Please ensure you have a copy of your transcript or certificate to upload to the qualifications section of the application form.
Graduate membership offers recent HR graduates a professional level membership at the reduced annual fee. This is available for two years. At the completion of your two-year graduate membership, one of our member support team will be in contact to guide you through the most appropriate next level membership that will match your career status.
You can apply for graduate membership, if you have graduated from an HR relevant qualification (at Bachelor degree level or higher) within the last two years.
If you have four or more years' HR work experience, this membership level is not for you.
To apply for your AHRI Graduate membership, you must provide proof of your graduation (e.g. academic transcript, certificate or testamur).
