A unique opportunity now exists for a driven and resilient Chief Executive to ensure Racing Foundation continues to deliver its ambitious objectives.
Salary: £90,000 – £110,000 + benefits
Location: Home based with UK wide travel.
The Racing Foundation was set up in 2012 with an endowment of £78 million from the net proceeds of the UK government’s sale of the Tote, with the principle aim of supporting charitable purposes associated with the horseracing and thoroughbred breeding industry. Since its inception, The Racing Foundation has played a pivotal role in being a catalyst for positive change across the sport and creating lasting legacies, having awarded over £37m in grants.
With the Racing Foundation about to embark on its next three-year strategy, with an £89M endowment in place, a unique opportunity now exists for a driven and resilient Chief Executive to ensure it continues to deliver its ambitious objectives and to assume an ever-more visible and influential position across the racing landscape.
Reporting into the Chair of Trustees, the CEO will will be responsible for the day-to-day management of all aspects of the Foundation from the delivery and implementation of its business plan to engaging regularly with all key racing stakeholders to ensure that the Foundation can strengthen its position as a catalyst for change and showcase the positive impact the sport can have.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone with a track-record of contributing to the development and implementation of strategic plans along with the ability to establish long term relationships with Trustees, external organisations, and stakeholders.
The successful candidate will have Board level experience ideally gained within a charity, grant-making Foundation, or regulated sporting body. A strong interest in horse racing is essential as is the willingness and ability to be hands on to effectively manage the day-to-day operations of a small organisation.
