After a 13 year race riding career from 1987 to 2001, with over 600 rides, Allan was looking to find a more secure non-riding position in racing.
Job application assistance and CV and interview preparation.
Allan was appointed Racecourse Stables Manager at Goodwood in 2008.
Seamus Buckley, Clerk of the Course at Goodwood: “JETS put two candidates forward for this role and both were excellent. I would definitely use their recruitment service again, as they understand what we need and the sort of people we are looking for.”
Allan: “I had retired from race riding seven years ago and had been working in a yard but at the age of 41 and with 3 young children to support, I felt I needed to look for a non-riding position which offered new challenges. This role requires a great deal of patience, working on one’s own initiative and communicating with people on the phone and there’s a real buzz.”
