Racing Welfare is a national charity supporting British horseracing’s workforce. Due to national growth and development we are now looking to recruit an additional Welfare Officer for the West Midlands to cover the counties of Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
Knowledge and experience of the thoroughbred horseracing and breeding industries is essential. You will need to be highly motivated and flexible with excellent listening and interpersonal skills, an understanding of professional boundaries and a commitment to continuous professional development. Some experience of working with and supporting people, alongside an understanding of confidentiality and data protection is desirable, although training will be provided.
We are a close-knit and supportive team and we need a strong team player who is able to get involved and promote the ethos of the charity, offer impartial information, advice, guidance and support to all those connected to the industry.
This is a home based role so the post holder will ideally be situated in the West Midlands region. Travel across the region and country will be required, for which you will need to use your own car. A mileage allowance will be paid. This is a full time post, however we will consider flexible working applications.
Racing Welfare offers a competitive salary and benefits package.
Please note, as this post will involve direct contact with young people and vulnerable adults alongside some work of a sensitive nature it will be subject to a satisfactory, enhanced DBS disclosure. We also make checks on staff working with vulnerable adults and young people against the DBS barred lists.
Application: Please include a CV and covering letter with your application. Interview date: Wednesday 27th November 2019.
We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date if we receive a large number of suitable applications. All applications should be submitted through our online careers page.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO CONSIDER APPLICATIONS THAT ARE NOT SUBMITTED THROUGH OUR CAREERS WEBSITE PROVIDED ABOVE.
