Competitive salary plus car plus benefits

An organised, enthusiastic and dynamic individual is needed to manage the ‘HSBC Golf Roots’ junior programme being promoted by the Golf Foundation on behalf of the England Golf Partnership.  The Development Manager will have responsibility for coordinating a programme that seeks to recruit more young people into the sport as well as retain more juniors in golf clubs.  This will be achieved through close working with key partners such as England Golf, the PGA, Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust.  The successful candidate will manage a team of 8 regional development officers.  

A sound knowledge of sports development principles and practices is essential, as is experience of sports development work within the education, club and county sport sectors. There will be a particular focus on developing a ‘club-centric’ approach through HSBC Golf Roots Centres where links with PGA Coaches, club volunteers, School Games structures, County Sport Partnerships and county development groups will be important.

Good IT skills and the ability to communicate effectively in a variety of circumstances are all required.  An appropriate degree qualification is desirable.  Applicants should have an interest, but not necessarily a background, in golf.
