Digital Content Editor
My role as Digital Content Editor at Racing Welfare involves writing and updating the advice pages, telling people's stories and creating videos and podcasts. Hosting, producing and editing Racing Welfare's podcast On Track, Off Course is great fun and has hopefully helped to highlight the breadth of support the charity offers to those who work in racing.
Racing staff can find practical advice on the website which houses information on physical health, mental health, careers, housing and monetary issues, offering a first point of contact for racing employees and provides an initial step in reaching out for help.
I have previously worked at the Racing Post and Racing UK in digital roles. Prior to this, I worked in a racing yard in Australia as well as at a small stud. This gave me great insight into the challenges faced by staff and an appreciation of how much hard work goes in behind the scenes whether that’s in yards, at studs or in the media.
It’s the staff who keep the show on the road and without them we wouldn’t have the privilege of enjoying the sport we all love. I hope the advice pages alongside the case studies and podcast, offer the support and information that people in racing need.
In my spare time, I enjoy a day out at the races as often as possible and I try to embrace the ups and downs of supporting Everton FC!
