Colt Mackenzie McNair, the golf industry’s premier executive search and recruitment specialist, has partnered with IFM Sports Marketing Surveys, experts in delivering first class analysis and market insight, to launch a golf industry first, the inaugural ‘Golf Salary & Benefits Study 2010’.

This important and comprehensive study, to be published in April 2010 and supported by the Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) and the European Golf Course Owners Association (EGCOA) will collate remuneration, benefits and staff development information from business professionals throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

This annual report will give employers and potential candidates detailed information and insight into current business practice, focusing on salary and benefit benchmarking, demographics of senior managers and staff development patterns and analysis.

Richard Wood, director of Colt Mackenzie McNair, that works exclusively in the golf markets of EMEA and Asia Pacific, said: “We’re urging all stakeholders in the golf industry to take part in this study. Their input will enable us to publish the most comprehensive, valuable and useful insight document of this type.”

The Golf Salary & Benefits Study 2010 is set to be much more than a document that highlights salary banding across different golf industry disciplines. Its content will have much greater depth and meaning, highlighting geographical mobility of potential candidates, academic demographics of managers and relevant training information to aid staff retention and career development.

Richard added: “There is a distinct lack of accurate and credible information about salaries and benefits in the golf industry and this study will be highlighting the packages currently on offer across the various regions. We are sure employers will be able to use this information to attract and retain the best people.

“On the flip side, individuals working in various roles and across different territories will gain greater understanding of their own market value and will be able to use the Golf Salary & Benefits Study 2010 to map out their own career paths.”

To take part in this groundbreaking study, business professionals should visit where they can confidentially take part.
