We sometimes have vacancies for staff, full or part time.  We are looking for people who are willing to take responsibility and who love their horses.  We provide a full induction and in house job training. Our people also have access to any relevant external training and are encouraged to take up these opportunities. Rae was the first racehorse trainer in the UK to have achieved Investors in People accreditation, which underlines his commitment to the ongoing development of the people who work for him and won a National Training Award for staff management and training.

Rae's staff have come from all around the world - including Sweden, Norway, Portugal, Bulgaria, Denmark, South Africa and Kenya - and accommodation is provided for eight on site. People who have worked for Rae have gone on to work in the racing industry in places as far afield as Hong Kong, Singapore, Scandinavia, Germany, America, South Africa and Dubai, which is testament to the excellent grounding and experience they receive at the yard.

For more details of vacancies presently available (if any) please call or email the office.
