I work part-time in Reception alongside Jenny who is our full-time Receptionist. No two days are ever the same, we deal with people calling into the office both in person and on the telephone, as first point of contact our main role is to know where to direct people. We also help with the administration side of running the charity and the events we put on for our beneficiaries.
I have always worked in a face to face environment, meeting and interacting with people is something I very much enjoy. Prior to working for Racing Welfare I worked at Newmarket Racecourses, both in the office and at the courses. This has given me some insight into the hard work that goes on behind the scenes of horse racing.
The team at Racing Welfare are a lovely bunch of people all with varying backgrounds. We have very good working relationships and always enjoy ourselves when the whole charity gets together, whether this be a fundraising event or in house training.
