MotorSport Vision is the UK’s largest motor racing circuit operator with Brands Hatch, Donington Park, Oulton Park, Snetterton, Cadwell Park and Bedford Autodrome in our portfolio.
We require a new Circuit Manager at Brands Hatch in Kent. This prestigious position provides an exciting opportunity to head up the team at one of the UK’s premier motorsport venues, reporting
directly to our Group Operations Manager and Chief Executive.
It is a demanding but rewarding role. You will be responsible for ensuring that the venue grounds, facilities, buildings and of course the track itself are maintained and presented to MSV’s industry renowned high standards, ready for daily circuit activity.
You will also need to plan and manage all that happens at the venue, from trackdays to club racing and most challengingly major promoted events with big crowds, such as the British Touring Car Championship and British Superbike Championship.
You will be responsible for Brands Hatch’s financial performance with regard to operational and event budgets, as well as catering outlets, routine maintenance, development projects, health & safety and HR.
You’ll have your own team and a wealth of experience from our other capable Circuit Managers to call on, as well as support from MSV Group resources.
Working effectively with representatives from race series and clubs that will visit Brands Hatch, Motorsport governing bodies, the local authority and various tenants and contractors that are on site, is another important part of the job.
You will need to be a bright and exceptionally driven individual who can also motivate the team around you to perform consistently at a high level.
Meticulous attention to detail and strong organisational skills are essential, along with the ability to cope with tight deadlines and fast changing situations.
You must have a good commercial awareness and be able to make informed decisions and reasoned recommendations for revenue generating opportunities.
Producing pre-event budgets and post-event returns will be your responsibility so strong IT skills are a must have, especially Excel.
Building and developing effective relationships is critical to success. This includes within MSV and externally with a variety of organisations.
Motorsport experience is a great asset but is not essential. Experience of managing large public venues or events, maintenance of extensive grounds and facilities, and undertaking civil engineering projects would each be an advantage.
Core working hours are 8.30 – 18.00 in the week but in reality the hours are driven by the event calendar. You must be flexible and able to work weekends and Bank Holidays, especially during the race season (typically March to October) along with early starts and late finishes where necessary.
Academic achievements are valued by us and we will be looking for strong results at some or ideally all of GCSEs, A levels, degree or equivalent.
