The Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) has been delighted by the recent recognition given to their qualifications by leading UK based recruitment firms, Colt MacKenzie McNair and Timberlake Golf.
The CMAE have two qualifications for club management, the Club Manager Diploma (CMdip) which is available after completing the Management development programmes on Operations and Building and Managing the Club Team and the globally recognised Certified Club Manager (CCM).
Michael Braidwood, CMAE’s Director of Education said, “We are delighted to see the leading recruitment firms putting our qualifications on their job adverts as desirable requirements for prospective candidates. The Club Management sector for a long time has been run without recognised qualifications, so its great to see club industry professionals who have invested in their education having their qualifications recognised.”
Ian Timberlake of Timberlake Golf said, “I recently recommended to one of my clients, when advertising for a General Manager, that we should look for candidate applications with the Certified Club Manager (CCM) qualification as a desirable requirement of their suitability. I believe that candidates with an ambition to educate and further themselves as a Club Manager will be able to demonstrate higher levels of competency whilst in employment and this would directly benefit the Club.”
Whilst Adam Keeble of Colt MacKenzie McNair said, “As long standing partners of the CMAE, we have attended a number of the management development programmes and have witnessed at first hand the quality of education being delivered. We have great confidence in recommending to our clients that they actively seek candidates that hold the CMAE’s qualifications: Club Manager Diploma and Certified Club Manager when looking to appoint managerial positions at their clubs.”
The CMAE offers an education pathway that covers the 10 Core competencies of modern club management, delivered through five different management programmes: 1. Operations 2. Building and Managing the Club team 3. Food and beverage management 4. Golf Operations 5. Strategy and Leadership.
