The Racing Foundation Looks to Appoint a New Trustee and Chair for January 2022

Tuesday, 18 May 2021

The Racing Foundation is looking to appoint two Trustees, with one to become Chair, with roles to commence 1st January 2022.

The Racing Foundation is delivering its most ambitious strategy to date; a strategy that will see it be a catalyst and funder of improvement for the British horseracing and Thoroughbred breeding industries, delivering real impact over the next three years. To provide guidance and assurance on the delivery of our ambitions, and the fulfilment of our purpose, we now require two exceptional Trustees to serve an initial three year term, with one to act as Chair. These are unremunerated positions. 

These will replace the existing Chair and a Trustee who leave their roles on the 31st December having both served 2 terms and overseen the work of the Foundation for the past 6 years.
