What is a Chartered Manager?"Chartered Manager is the hallmark of a professional manager"
Managers won't achieve Chartered status without proving that they’ve made a difference to the bottom line.
The process is independent, credible and robust. It’s why Britain's leading brands are increasingly recognising its value and why managers see it as one of the key opportunities in their career to analyse formally what they do well in order to achieve official recognition.
It's about defining the difference you make to your organisation whether it's a not-for-profit or a multi-national.
Chartered Manager is recognised across sectors, industries and internationally which means it stays relevant to you and your organisation throughout your career and the requirement to revalidate every three years proves that you consistently deliver the right results.
