Finance Director

Newbury Racecourse PLC is an award-winning sporting, leisure and entertainment business, traded on NEX. 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 its own catering business. In a partnership with David Wilson Homes the racecourse is in the process of developing 1500 homes on the estate and has reinvested over £20M in upgrading its facilities to the benefit of all customer groups. With ambitious plans for further development of the business, an opportunity has now arisen for a Finance Director.

Acting as Business Partner to the Chief Executive, this is a Board level position representing an exceptional opportunity for an individual with significant commercial experience to join the senior management team and help lead the future of the racecourse.

Setting the financial strategy in line with the objectives of the Board, including continuing growth, the Finance Director will be responsible for leading the day-to-day management and operation of the finance function.

This is a full-time opportunity for a dynamic individual with integrity, a commercial strategic focus and exceptional financial astuteness. An appreciation of racing is advantageous but not a pre-requisite, and we are open to considering applications from those with transferable skills.
