Golf Jobs, the only job-board and recruitment service provider dedicated to the UK golf industry, has partnered with Ellis Whittam, the Employment Law, HR, and Health & Safety specialist. The tie-up means that over 3,000 golf clubs, resorts and key industry employers will now have access to a free confidential advice call for Employment Law or Health & Safety advice when using Golf Jobs.

Whether an employer is facing an immediate issue or would benefit from the reassurance of a second opinion, the ability to talk matters through with a professional will save valuable time and frustration and enable Golf Jobs’ clients to operate with the confidence that they are acting within the law. As an extension of the partnership, if a Golf Jobs client requires more hands-on help beyond an initial call, they can access a highly preferential fixed-fee rate for unlimited personalised support.

Ellis Whittam has a strong industry reputation for the quality of support provided to the sports and leisure sector. Recognised by The Legal 500 as a leading employment law firm, its legal team is made up of solicitors, barristers and chartered legal professionals. Ellis Whittam can offer guidance, interpretation and legal advice to help employers manage a full range of employee-related issues. Its Health & Safety consultants are professionally qualified, sector-experienced and have an acute understanding of the risk management and compliance challenges present within the sports and leisure business environment.

Golf Jobs counts several of the top employers in worldwide golf among its clients including Marriott Resorts, St Andrews Golf Club, Burhill Group, England Golf and American Golf. It provides a specialist service that gets vacancies in front of the right candidates with a strong belief in providing the best support and service for both clients and candidates.

“This agreement perfectly complements the wider value we offer to the employers we work with,” said Darren O’Donnell, founder and managing director at Golf Jobs. “Having the right legal advice on employment matters and professional guidance on maintaining safe facilities is vital as golf’s popularity rebounds post-pandemic. With access to this support, our clients can spend more time focused on building their businesses.”
