Racing Welfare
Help for racing's people in need

Racing Welfare is the horseracing industry’s main occupational welfare charity providing advice, guidance, financial support and affordable homes to people in need who work in, or are retired from the horseracing industry.

To help fund its charitable programme, the Charity has a small but busy fundraising team, and we have two vacancies to join the department.

Fundraising Executive

Salary: circa £22.5 k depending on experience

The role will primarily be based around events, with responsibility for the coordination of events, including sourcing sponsorship, liaising with committees and working with suppliers. The post holder will be expected to use creativity and innovation to make these events a success.

The successful candidate will have excellent organisational, communication and interpersonal skills and be able to work off their own initiative as well as part of a team. Experience of the horseracing industry is preferable and a background in fundraising is desirable but not essential.

The role will be based at the Charity’s head office in Newmarket, Suffolk, although evening and weekend work should be expected in order to run events throughout the UK.
