AIM and CMI partnership ensuring managers are internationally recognised

The ability to gain Chartered Manager status has already proven popular with AIM Members. The partnership between AIM and the Chartered Management Institute has enabled a dozen Australian managers to achieve equal footing with their international peers.

The Australian Institute of Management’s new allegiance with the Chartered Management Institute UK is proving immediately rewarding with the arrangement generating significant interest within both body’s Memberships.

AIM last month partnered with the CMI UK to offer managers based in Australia a pathway to the internationally-recognised Chartered Manager (CMgr) status.

Kevin Saunders CMgr FCMI, CMI Professional Bodies Partnerships Manager said the arrangement had already been well received by managers wanting official recognition for their professional background.

“We have had 11 registrations thus far with two successful completions,” Mr Saunders said.

“The Chartered Manager status had become a widely accepted and much esteemed professional benchmark in the UK and it’s exciting to be able to offer Australian managers the same esteem.

“Chartered Managers are those who have reached the pinnacle of the management profession as they are assessed on their experience, qualifications and the impact they make in their organisation.”

AIM Acting CEO Membership, Tony Gleeson FAIM said the international recognition of management status was long overdue in Australia and that AIM’s unique arrangement with CMI ensured the Institute’s Members were on a par with the international colleagues.

“AIM is a Member-focused organisation and this partnership with CMI means our Members are getting access to the benefits they deserve,” Mr Gleeson said.

AIM members receive a 50 percent discount on CMI membership when applying for Chartered Manager status through AIM. The discount will be extended provided AIM membership is maintained.

To apply, members must complete an online application which will be followed by an assessment process, with help from a CMI assessor, before a formal telephone interview.

To qualify for Chartered Manager status, managers must demonstrate current professional experience and qualifications, as well as a commitment to continuing professional development and adherence to the CMI Code of Practice for Professional Managers.
