The Injured Jockeys Fund is a charity whose vision is to improve the lives of injured jockeys and their families. We do this by providing immediate and ongoing help and support to all current and former jockeys who have held professional, amateur and point to point license plus apprentices and conditionals and their families. We provide an independent, confidential and sensitive welfare service, supporting injured jockeys and their families on a case-by-case basis.
We are expanding our services into the Southwest of England where we have a high population of jockeys both current and retired and are therefore looking for a new member of staff to join our welfare team. The job includes a mix of office-based work, face to face visiting and outward bound PR campaign at point to points, racecourses and local yards. Additionally, internally you will working closely with the IJF Centre in Lambourn and the Clinical and wider Centre teams post physical injury.
