Full Time

International Racecourse Management Ltd (IRM) manages the operations of four, independent Yorkshire racecourse companies, namely Catterick, Redcar, Thirsk, and Wetherby, under contract on behalf of their respective boards and shareholders.

Due to internal reorganisation, IRM is presently recruiting two candidates, to undertake the General Manager (GM) roles at Catterick and Thirsk racecourses respectively. The GMs will be responsible for the day-to-day management of many aspects of these busy racecourses.

Catterick races year-round both on the flat and over jumps, whilst Thirsk is a flat racecourse which stages fixtures between April and September. Both Catterick and Thirsk racecourses have recently built new stands and have large open spaces, which means driving the non-racing events business forward is also a key aspect of each GM roles.

The successful candidates will be good communicators, with commercial experience, who can manage diverse operations and solve problems. Experience in managing people and being able to cope under pressure, whilst maintaining an eye for the detail, are also important.

Apply in writing by 3rd October 2022 to James Sanderson, via email: Please include details of your current remuneration package and attach your CV. Applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.
