Rutherford Cross is retained by The R&A to recruit a Finance Project Manager

The R&A organises The Open, golf’s oldest and most international Major championship. Additionally, The R&A also organises a series of amateur and junior golf events.

Together with the USGA, The R&A governs the sport of golf worldwide, operating in separate jurisdictions whiles sharing a commitment to a single code for the Rules of Golf, Rules of Amateur Status and Equipment Standards. The R&A, through R&A Rules Ltd, governs worldwide, outside of the United States and Mexico, with the consent of 156 organisations from amateur and professional golf, and on behalf of over 30 million golfers in 143 countries.
