New Specialist Job Site Launched for Golf Industry

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 04 Nov 2020

Golf Jobs is a new service that will provide golf clubs, retailers, manufacturers, resorts and bodies throughout the golf industry with their own specialist job search platform, offering a dedicated space for employers to list and promote jobs.

While the site has already established itself with some of the world’s top golf brands and major courses and clubs, it is set to become an invaluable resource for all sides of the industry in the wake of COVID-19 and the recent return to play for golf courses worldwide.

The site brings together job vacancies from around the world onto one platform, making the hiring process simpler for employers and candidates trying to find their ideal match. Founder and Managing Director, Darren O’Donnell, created the business as a way of helping to streamline recruitment in all areas of the golf world:

“Jobs within the golf industry are incredibly varied and encompass many skillsets; from Club Managers and PGA Professionals to Greenkeepers and Course Managers. I saw a gap in the market for a dedicated service to help organisations find the right personnel, and for passionate candidates to get their start in the industry or continue their career in new avenues.”

Through its network of job sites and targeted marketing campaigns, Golf Jobs provides employers with a specialist service that gets their vacancies in front of the right candidates, while also providing the latest industry news and career support. The company has already worked with some of the top employers in worldwide golf – including Marriott Resorts, St. Andrews Golf Club, Burhill Group, England Golf and American Golf.

Moving into a post-lockdown era, Golf Jobs is likely to become a much-needed tool for anyone looking to hire or start a career within the golf industry, and the business is already in talks with some national governing bodies like the Asia Golf Federation, Scottish Golf and other associations.

Darren adds: "We will be launching our new platform in the coming weeks, which will be supporting video interviewing technology and instant chat feature for our clients.

"This will allow our employers to instantly engage with job seekers, whilst also supporting employers to still carry out a comprehensive recruitment process with COVID restrictions.

"We will also be supporting job-seekers and candidates interested in the golf industry or wanting to further their career with our ‘career section’ and ‘Education section’. This will provide courses and career development options for our users.  Supporting our users at every level of their career within the golf industry.

"Our services allow for employers to advertise their advert on the job-board all the way through to managed services to help with more complex roles that need filled, we have a solution for any hiring need. More importantly our team has over 10 year’s experience within the recruitment, golf and job-board industries. Meaning there is no company better placed to deliver the best recruitment support and delivery for all clients within the golf industry."

Darren aims to continue refining the platform to offer the best service possible and hopes it will cement its place as a trusted resource for the golf industry:

“We developed Golf Jobs to simplify the hiring process and help employers stay in control of costs while increasing the quality and level of candidates they receive. We are seeing record numbers of candidates coming to our site for jobs due to the current economic impact of COVID.

"With top talent now ready for their next move, we are sure that Golf Jobs can offer an unrivalled service for employers and candidates alike.”
