London, England: Talent.golf, a new global golf job site, has been launched to service the US$50 billion global golf industry and its millions of employees.
Through talent.golf, employers can connect with a specialist golf talent community through a powerful digital platform.
Capitalising on the growth of digital recruitment, talent.golf is positioned to provide an efficient and cost effective solution for employers in their talent search and hiring process.
Talent.golf is a part of Colt Mackenzie McNair, the specialist executive search group that operates across the global golf markets and is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
This allows talent.golf to draw on years of recruitment experience to develop a platform that is user-driven, giving clients a full service of recruitment solutions.
Adam Keable, Director at talent.golf, said: “Hiring in the digital age has changed dramatically in the last five years. Today’s job seekers expect a fast, easy application process which can only be achieved by utilising the right technology. Talent.golf maximises the candidate experience from registration to application making it quick and simple to engage with employers.
“Candidates now approach job hunts very differently. They will be researching employers as much as employers are researching candidates. To be effective, recruiters are going to need to engage Generation Y candidates in new ways and a company’s employer brands play a bit part in that.
“The use of social networks and other digital platforms as candidate search tools has opened up a much wider talent pool for recruiters to draw from, but the time it takes to do that research can sometimes distract hiring managers away from their most important task of actually hiring.
“Talent.golf then becomes a powerful hiring tool as it focuses on a specialist talent pool, engages with jobseekers and promotes not just the employer’s vacancy but also their brand.”
Within a month of launch, talent.golf has advertised positions with some of golf’s leading brands across a variety of different sectors in the golf industry including Troon Golf, Yas Links, Macdonald Hotels, Golf Breaks and Top Golf.
Hong Kong: Peter Tang Shu-chuen, a hugely influential figure in China’s golfing history who conducted one of the sport’s most famous and far-reaching lessons, has passed away at the age of 71.
