Financial Controller

Competitive Salary + Benefits



Newbury Racecourse PLC is an award-winning sporting, leisure and entertainment business, with shares traded on the Aquis Stock Exchange. Based in West Berkshire this multi-functional site plays host to c. 30 racedays per year plus a wide range of public, corporate and private events. In addition, the racecourse operates a 120+ place children’s nursery, a 36-bedroom Hotel, and has a close working partnership with its outsourced catering provider. The business has secured its media rights for the next five years and is seeking to broaden commercial revenue streams to grow the business further, which means that an opportunity has now arisen for a newly created role of Financial Controller.




This represents an exceptional opportunity for an individual with financial and analytical expertise and commercial experience to provide financial leadership as an effective deputy to the Finance Director.




The Financial Controller will be responsible for the day-to-day financial operations of the business, line management of the finance team (currently a team of six), delivery of statutory filings, and providing valuable commercial and financial analysis to support the Finance Director and senior management team.


This is a full-time opportunity, based at the racecourse, for an individual with integrity, a commercial strategic focus, exceptional financial astuteness and a very keen eye for detail. An appreciation of racing would be an advantage but not essential, and we are keen to consider applications from those with transferable skills, particularly gained within comparable hospitality, events or sporting venue.




To explore this opportunity please submit your CV and covering letter including remuneration details either via Careers in Racing or by email to Hugh Nickerson of Conundrum


Strictly no agencies please, all enquiries will be forwarded to Conundrum
