Singapore: The Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF) has launched a new initiative aimed at serving the industry’s staffing needs.
This week saw the commencement of a Job Postings segment within the new-look AGIF website at www.agif.asia
Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “There’s no doubt that the time is right for an undertaking such as this.
“As the region’s umbrella organisation for golf, we are frequently asked to assist companies who are seeking employees and individuals who are looking for jobs.
“In Asia, there are few central places for people to go to advertise a position or to express an interest in wanting a job. We aim for that to change with this new service, with the AGIF acting as the facilitator in bringing people together.
“The hope is that the Jobs Postings section will help many to further their careers – whether it’s in greenkeeping, marketing, food and beverage, teaching professionals … or any job related to the golf industry.”
Submissions can be completed on-line with advertisements remaining on the listing page for a maximum period of eight weeks, unless the listing party specifies a closing date before that date or the job is filled, whichever is earlier.
Richard Walne, AGIF President and Managing Director, Australia and Asia Pacific for The Toro Company, said: “There are many hundreds of golf-related companies in the Asia-Pacific region and many thousands of people working within the golf industry.
“A Job Postings initiative is much-needed and will, I’m sure, prove to be a resounding success.”
All members of the AGIF will be entitled to a number of complimentary job placement ads per annum and reduced rates on any further placements.
Non-AGIF members will also be able to make use of the service.
