Ben Swarbrick
- Equine Insurance

Ben had ridden over 60 winners from 1,000 rides as an apprentice from 2002 to 2007 before deciding to make his career switch.


Ben approached JETS early on with the idea of taking a degree to help prepare him for a career in the business world. We were able to help him realise his ambitions through a JETS scholarship.


Ben graduated with a BSc in Psychology from Leeds University and went on to become JETS’ first ever candidate to go through the BHA Graduate Development Scheme. In January 2011, he started as a Racing Assistant at the Ascot-based offices of the Racecourse Association. In February 2014 he moved to work for the XL Insurance group as an Underwriting Assistant.


Ben: “I really enjoyed my work at the Racecourse Association but XL is a global company and offers me fantastic career progression opportunities.”
