More autonomy, more growth, more responsibility and more fun...
Are you ready for the challenge of marketing a truly unique horseracing region and the home to world class flat racing, which includes Newmarket, Huntingdon, Nottingham and Market Rasen racecourses?
As a key member of the team you will be part of a ground breaking group helping to shape and develop the new regional structure, unifying individual racecourses under one consistent regional strategy.
The Jockey Club is the number one investor and the largest commercial group in British Horseracing, operating a modern corporate structure. All profits are reinvested back into racing with £287.1 million in prize money and £150 million invested in facilities over the last 8 years. Like you, we are ambitious and with your proven consumer marketing knowledge and inspirational leadership skills we aim to attract even more customers to this exciting sport and its unique facilities. Hundreds of days live racing and record high attendances of 6.2 million last year across 15 racecourses only tells part of the success story. We hold music nights, conferences, product launches, Christmas parties, and exhibitions, which should give you a flavour of this complex multi-faceted business.
You will lead and motivate your own multifunctional team to deliver all aspects of marketing from brand strategy, planning, pricing, sponsorship, PR and digital media which will delight and engage with a wide audience in both racing and non-racing communities. We will challenge you to inspire new and innovative ways of generating profitable revenue and you’ll need to push the boundaries to reach out to thousands of customers and huge TV audiences to encourage them to join in the experience and exhilarating excitement of world class flat racing, pulsating music nights, great value family days, award-winning restaurants and exceptional Conference & Events facilities.
Coming from a consumer led environment you should be able to demonstrate your ability to lead and develop marketing teams and have experience of designing and delivering cost effective marketing strategies that drive profit. If the answer is “yes”, welcome to The Jockey Club! In this exciting new role you will be part of a regional team where the opportunities for growth are truly limitless.
