New partnership to grow club industry in SA:

The Club Management Association of South Africa (CMASA) has embarked on a strong recruitment drive to develop new talent within the club industry.
The partnership with Club Recruitment is set to transform CMASA’s recruitment strategy.

CMASA is the main recruitment arm for the South African club industry, offering a full service of staff screening, interviews and background checks.

Over the past number of years, CMASA placed in excess of 100 top managerial positions at sports and recreation clubs in South Africa.
Through this exclusive partnership, Club Recruitment now has an offering that can specifically target new blood in the industry and its own transformation objectives.

CMASA members will now have a two-fold option of either recruiting in-house and advertising their vacancies on the CMASA platforms at a nominal fee, or utilizing the new expanded Club Recruitment service which offers a wider pool of talent at a very competitive rate.
“It is our desire to attract suitably qualified previously disadvantaged candidates by using an agency that has a larger pool of candidates,” said Paul Leishman, Executive Committee Member of CMASA.

“Having kept the recruitment processes in-house for decades, we have struggled to get beyond our usual candidates. Through the exclusive partnership between CMASA, the PGA of SA and BGA Recruitment, we have a trustworthy and effective recruitment offering which allows for new blood to move into the industry, and to encourage more people to enter into this wonderful career and service industry.”
