For more than 600 years, St Andrews Links, much like the game of golf itself, has evolved. Today
more than 230,000 rounds are played over their seven public courses. St Andrews Links Trust
also manages a number of additional facilities including a golf academy, three clubhouses and
four shops. St Andrews Links is a charitable trust; therefore, all profits are reinvested into
protecting and maintaining the world-famous courses and to enhancing the St Andrews
experience for everyone.

As part of an ambition to further increase the funds available to reinvest, St Andrews Links are
now looking to identify a suitable individual to join our small Senior Leadership Team as
Commercial Director. Accountable for the commercial activities of the whole organisation, the
Commercial Director will develop and implement strategies which grow the global renown and
value of the brand, enhance existing commercial relationships, identify new opportunities, and
make recommendations to explore new markets and collaborative partnerships. As a senior
leader, you will lead the Commercial teams and will actively contribute to the Trust’s ability to
deliver on their strategic ambitions by delivering transformational growth in the Trust’s
commercial activities.


We are looking for an authentic leader, capable of managing and motivating a talented
Commercial team and engaging with an extensive stakeholder group. As a key custodian of the
St Andrews Links brand, you will instinctively protect and maintain their values and be respectful
of the history that has provided St Andrews Links with the unique place and status their brand
holds in the game of golf. This role represents a genuinely unique, once in a career opportunity
to join one of the world’s most unique sporting brands in a senior leadership position, whilst being
directly responsible for implementing a step change in the commercial activities to ensure the
organisation grows and thrives for generations to come.
