Digital Content Editor
My role as Digital Content Editor involves writing, editing and updating close to 100 advice pages on Racing Welfare's website. Interviewing beneficiaries and writing case studies is one of the most enjoyable parts of my role along with creating videos and podcasts. Co-hosting, co-producing and editing Racing Welfare's hit podcast 'On Track, Off Course' is not only great fun but hugely rewarding 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 providing an initial step in reaching out for help.
I have previously worked at the Racing Post and Racing TV 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 some support and solace to those in racing who need help.
In my spare time, I enjoy a day out at the races, attempting to unearth winners through extensive form study and I try to embrace the ups and downs of supporting Everton FC!
