We are here to help you

The careersinracing team are still working during this difficult time to support you in your careers research; to give you advice on the training routes you can take in the future, and to bring you live jobs from across the industry.

Our Job Board is pretty quiet during this period when we are not racing –  but we are THE central free resource on behalf of the whole industry, be that racing yards, studs, racecourses and administrative bodies, so it is worth registering with us a candidate so that we can keep you up to-date with future job news.

Looking to start your career in racing?

We are still available on all our social media channels to answer any of your questions, so if you are home schooling, or finished school due to the GCSE’s and A Levels situation this year, we are more than happy to have a chat with you about your options.  So please do get in touch.  And don’t forget you can sign up for our career’s newsletter on the home page of our website, towards the bottom of the page.

Already working in the industry?

If you are already working in racing there are also lots of resources available to you currently:
