Golf Graduate Programme launched

Talented candidates who successfully graduate from UK universities and colleges now have a new pathway to a career in the global golf industry with the Graduate Programme from golf recruitment specialists Colt Mackenzie McNair (CMM).

The initiative, which is free for both graduates and employers, offers the industry’s future management talent an opportunity to find their ideal first placement within many different sectors. This will include golf management and operations; sales, digital marketing; turfcare; hospitality and events; manufacturing; coaching and retail.

Potential employers can use the CMM Graduate Programme to access the best talent for their graduate positions, internships, student placements and work experience staff, with the ability to access the alumni talent pool who already have industry experience.

Several of the industry’s businesses and trade associations have already given the CMM Graduate Programme their support, including Topgolf, BIGGA, GCMA, CMAE, England Golf, Trump International, BGL Golf, Crown Golf and Your Golf Travel.

Richard Wood (pictured), director of Colt Mackenzie McNair commented, “Our new professional graduate programme will enable us to increase the amount of highly-qualified individuals entering the UK golf industry each year. Early responses from the industry have been overwhelmingly positive, and we expect it to become a key part of the recruitment process for many UK employers”. More at:
