REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT OFFICER
Part Time Maternity Cover
Starting salary c.£26,000 (pro rata) plus benefits
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an organised, enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to join the Golf Foundation’s successful Regional Development team as maternity leave cover for 12 months and coordinate the successful HSBC Golf Roots programme in the East region of England (covering Cambridgeshire, Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk).
The Officer will work closely with PGA Coaches and officials/volunteers in golf clubs, and in partnership with officers from England Golf and the Professional Golfers’ Association, to help more young people ‘Start, Learn and Stay’ in the sport. In addition, the successful candidate will work with a variety of national and local partners such as StreetGames, County Sports Partnerships, clubs and schools to help more young people enjoy the playing and personal benefits of golf.

An appropriate leisure or teaching qualification is desirable. Applicants should have an interest, but not necessarily a background, in golf.
