Any job or career dealing with or working with people would benefit from the skills developed in RMPS.

Skills such as the knowledge and understanding of different cultures and religions is very useful in today’s multicultural world.

RMPS qualifications would be relevant and helpful in any jobs such as nursing, social work, care, and so on.

Other careers would benefit from the skills of analysis and evaluation we develop in RMPS such as journalism, the civil service, administration, retail & sales.
