Job description

Racing Welfare is a national charity supporting all those working and retired from the British horseracing and breeding industry.  Following an exciting period of growth and development we are looking to appoint a Deputy Head of Welfare to support the Director of Welfare in order to deliver an effective and efficient welfare service to the horseracing industry.

The new post holder will have direct responsibility for a number of key welfare projects and will ensure successful delivery and development of these as well as being responsible for supervising, coaching and guiding the Regional Management Team.  Reporting to the Director of Welfare you will have proven and demonstrable experience of safeguarding and supporting vulnerable people and will ensure that standards of excellence, best practice and efficiency are delivered through highly effective teams.  It is essential that you have the ability to manage budgets, allocate resources, line manage, decision make and problem solve. 

You will be a highly driven self-starter and an innovative, strategic thinker with a passion to improve wellbeing outcomes for people in their workplace. You will be an excellent communicator across a range of stakeholder groups and will remain strategically aligned to the charity’s core objectives and purpose. A keen interest and knowledge of the horseracing industry is desirable but not essential.

This post can be home or office-based or a combination of both and you should be willing to travel across the UK as part of the role. This role is a fixed-term contract of initially 12 months.
