Job Description


The GBGB is currently looking to recruit a Stipendiary Steward to cover Nottingham, Towcester & Henlow stadia and kennels ranging from Milton Keynes to Shrewsbury.


Reporting to the Senior Stipendiary Steward, duties will include:


  • Upholding the GBGB’s Rules of Racing in matters relating directly and indirectly to greyhound welfare.
  • Ensuring that inspection reports of kennels and racecourses are undertaken on a regular basis.
  • Conducting an annual inspection audit of racecourses, in line with UKAS accredited scheme.
  • Investigating cases and contributing to the prosecution process in accordance with the Rules of Racing.


The ideal candidate will be a fast learner, confident, resilient, work well under pressure and possess the ability to tackle issues head on.  A working knowledge of animal welfare legislation is highly desirable, as is experience of report writing.


Candidates must be able to demonstrate a very high standard of professional integrity and have had proven experience working in, or alongside kennels (particularly conducting inspections). Knowledge and/or a strong interest in greyhound racing is also essential.  Candidates who have worked in a regulatory background or have had experience of working within a similar role will also be considered.


Familiarity of the Rules of Racing, auditing and inspection principles and conducting investigations would be a distinct advantage, although training will be provided.


The position will largely involve lone working and therefore candidates must be able to work unsupervised and hold a clean and valid driving licence.  (This role will include a high volume of driving.)  


Candidates will ideally live in the Birmingham/Walsall area.


Salary: c.£37,000.00 per annum
