Track Liaison Officer
The Greyhound Board of Great Britain Welfare and Veterinary Standing Committee are looking to recruit a Track Liaison Officer to join our Track Sub-Committee.
The main purpose of this role is to visit the 19 GBGB licensed racecourses, a minimum of 4 times per year, to promote, as liaison with GBGB Track Consultants the Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI), best practice relating to track preparation and maintenance.
Candidates must have experience of maintaining sand, or similar surfaces that are required to operate year-round, with regular frequency and in wide ranging weather conditions. An understanding of the usage and maintenance of basic ground-working machinery, their abilities and functions, and familiarity with tractor usage is essential. Further understanding of the track fitting and environment, such as hare and watering systems would be preferable.
Excellent reporting and communication skills are also required as there will be regular contact with stadium staff (as both track and senior management level). You will also work alongside and interface with STRI.
Candidates will have the ability to demonstrate a consistent approach and vision to track preparation and maintenance during track visits and more formal training days with ground staff, therefore good presentational skills are required. Good IT skills are essential.
The candidate will be home-based and the ability to work under your own initiative is essential, as is a clean driving licence and your own vehicle.
There is a requirement for the Track Safety Officer to respond to both routine and more immediate calls for assistance from tracks. Further training and support for the role will be provided upon appointment.
Salary: c.£35,000 per annum plus mileage. The successful candidate will be supplied with the necessary homeworking IT equipment.
