You will also learn how to correctly align the photofinish mirror as well as survey the racecourse winning line.  As part of the race day TV Outside Broadcast team you will participate in the driving of our vehicles and on occasions may be required to operate a race camera – full training will be provided.

With good IT and communication skills, you must be physically fit, able to work at heights and have an aptitude for problem solving. You must also be prepared to travel and to work evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays.  A driving licence is essential; HGV is desirable.
