Scottish Racing Administrative Assistant


Scottish Racing promotes and supports horseracing throughout Scotland, and its five racecourses:  Ayr, Hamilton Park, Kelso, Musselburgh and Perth.


The organisation promotes all sectors of the industry north of the border, by lobbying on political issues in both Westminster and Holyrood, generating coverage in broadcast, printed and social media, updating existing racegoers on all relevant racing news, and campaigning to attract new audiences to racing.  Scottish Racing plays an integral part in delivering long-term prosperity and sustainability to the sport in Scotland.


An opportunity now exists for a reliable, motivated, individual to provide support in general administrative activities, liaising with shareholders and their staff, assisting with promotional and political campaigns, screen hire arrangements, updating all Scottish Racing’s digital channels, alongside other aspects within Scottish Racing’s remit.  This is a home-based position, working 20 hours/week, reporting to the Manager of Scottish Racing.


The ideal applicant will have excellent organisational skills and a professional knowledge of social media and website maintenance.  Other key attributes include someone who is able to work independently and to demonstrate a pro-active approach to planning and prioritising work.  Some knowledge of horseracing a bonus, but not a necessity.


To apply, please email your CV and covering letter, including remuneration details, to Scottish Racing on or call 01835 840315 for further details.
