Career Changer

If you are thinking of a complete career change you might have the skills racing needs!

Ready for a change?

There are many examples of people working in racing who have come from a very different career. Those that have perhaps previously been working in other equine disciplines, or in entirely different industries. Don't be afraid to take a look at our job board to see the many opportunities available. If you want to work directly with horses but don't ride you might like to take a look at the Ground Based Yard Staff Courses at the British Racing School or National Horseracing College or the free training for a career in the breeding industry course that is run at the National Stud.  For these courses, you don't need to have any prior experience.  Just an eagerness to learn and to want to work in the racing or breeding industry following your course.  You will find these courses advertised on this website, when they are being run, usually once a year.  

We also have some fantastic short courses where you can increase your knowledge. From our one day Overview of British Racing Seminar to the week long The Racing Industry Course (TRIC), you will be sure to learn lots more about the industry and how it works together to make racing happen. You could even study for one of the Industry Qualifications which is a self study option. More information can be found on the Courses and Training page.
