To respond to the market requirements in providing a quality service in executive recruitment consultancy, ECSSA-CERC has implemented a process that allows clients and candidates to qualify the executive recruitment consultants´ level of professionalism in terms of competence, ethics, independence and compliance.
CERC is a nominal and individual qualification, recognized by the EU members of ECSSA, guaranteeing that the certified consultant has a whole range of abilities to allow him/her to conduct an optimal executive recruitment assignment.
The title of a Certified Executive Research Consultant will be assigned after a comprehensive approval procedure by the “Federal Association of German Management Consultants” (BDU) according to the regulations of the European Confederation of Search & Selection Associations ECSSA.
The Federal Association of German Management Consultants, BDU eV, is the trade and professional association of management consultants and recruiters in Germany. It is the largest business consultant association in Europe and a member of the European recruiters umbrella organization European Confederation of Search and Selection Associations (ECSSA), based in Brussels and the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), the global association for quality assurance in the consulting firm headquartered in the United States.
