About Golf Jobs
Having played football (soccer) for most of his life in Scotland Darren O’Donnell, Golf Jobs CEO felt he was reaching that point in his 30s and decided he didn’t want to hobble about all weekend after a match. Darren was led to a new passion in life, golf, which for most seems to be a natural progression in life. He now eats, sleeps & breathes golf!
Having over 10 years of experience working in the job board/recruitment industry working with brands such as Monster, StepStone (Totaljobs/ Jobsite), Darren looked at how people became involved in the golf industry through education and finding job openings. To his surprise, it seemed like a ‘hidden secret’ on how you would go about either starting your career in golf or finding relevant job openings.
This led to the birth of Golf Jobs. Darren established Golf Jobs just over 3 years ago now and has created a market-leading job board that has all the functionality you would expect on a modern job board. The site is used by all the leading clubs, brands, and resorts in the global industry, and we can claim the be the #1 global job board for the golf industry. Golf Jobs also offers managed recruitment services in the UK & Ireland to further support employer needs which will open your franchise to further business opportunities.
Golf Jobs has grown from strength to strength in the UK & Ireland with over 15k visits each month to our site just for jobs!
We quickly understood the same business model could now be taken anywhere in the world and give others an opportunity to have their very own Golf Jobs business. We agreed on our Spain & Portugal franchise over a year ago and Carlos Lopez Santiago our franchisee has seen massive success. He has also grown to the business to offer HR services to further his offering in Spain/Portugal. More recently we have agreed on another franchise in New Zealand with our Franchisee Benn, whom we have no doubt will be a success & he will enjoy being part of the Golf Jobs Franchise family.
The Golf Jobs franchise offers franchisees the opportunity to operate a Golf Jobs franchise in their respective country. This business opportunity will allow the franchisee to sell our suite of services, including advertising on our job board, managed talent campaigns, or recruitment agency services. Clients who use the Golf Jobs site include golf clubs, resorts, influential brands selling equipment and clothing, travel companies, driving ranges, and hospitality. The key to our long-term success is the international aspect of our franchise model. Golf is a global and multi-billion industry and therefore offers enormous opportunities for growth throughout the world.
