Web service recruits managers

The European Golf Course Owners Association (EGCOA) is backing a new web-based recruitment solution from business partner Colt Mackenzie McNair that enables golf course owners to fill lower to middle management vacancies.

The portal, called CMM Select, allows golf course owners to advertise vacancies free of charge, with a placement fee applied only if an appointment is made via the service. Visitors to the site can view vacancies in real time, searching by job title, job type, region and salary band. Commenting on the solution, EGCOA director Lodewijk Klootwijk said: “The golf business is a people’s business. Golf courses need the best people at key functions. With CMM select we have a tool that allows us to find the best people for those important functions. EGCOA is very positive about CMM and fully supports it.”

“For certain positions, including sales and marketing, I think golf course owners should look to bring in professional experience and fresh ideas from sectors such as leisure, retail and fast moving consumer goods,” said Richard Wood, co-founder of Colt Mackenzie McNair. “That’s why we have launched a global marketing campaign to raise awareness of CMM Select, targeting best-of-breed professionals operating in the retail, sales and marketing, catering and hospitality industries.”
