C4C understand that it is all very well creating jobs, but the most important element is ensuring these are ‘good jobs’. We have therefore created the North Highlands Hospitality Charter, a document which aims to transform the reputation of the hospitality industry, creating a platform for renowned tourism jobs. The components of the charter include:
(1) hiring local talent,
(2) ensuring fair and decent pay, at living wage level or above, including the distribution of tips,
(3) training and development opportunities for all employees,
(4) guaranteeing inclusion and diversity for employees and
(5) creating secure and full-time jobs at every opportunity, rather than seasonal jobs.
C4C – who will own the planning permission for the Coul Links Golf Course and will retain custody of the land and a community stake in the business – will ensure that all businesses directly benefiting from the golf course, sign and adhere to the charter. We are pleased to announce that we have commitments to the charter so far from the Coul Links Golf Course developers, the Coul Links Hotel developer and Highland Coast Hotels (owners of the Royal Golf in Dornoch and the Royal Marine in Brora).”
