The Officer will work closely with PGA Coaches and officials/volunteers in golf clubs, and in partnership with officers from England Golf, to help more young people ‘Start and Stay’ in the sport. In addition, the successful candidate will work with a variety of national and local partners such as Street Games, Active Partnerships, youth organisations and schools to help more young people enjoy the benefits of golf.

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