Digital Content Editor
My role as Digital Content Editor at Racing Welfare involves writing and updating the support and advice pages on the website. Racing staff can find practical advice on careers, housing, monetary and legal issues as well as information on how to seek help for issues around mental health and addiction. The website offers 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 offer the support and information that people in racing need.
