If ever you find yourself daydreaming about cars, and wondering how Goodwood manages to pull together the world’s finest competition cars and drivers, bikes and riders, supercars and concours vehicles, then read on, as this could be the opportunity you have been dreaming of.
Each year the dedicated Goodwood Motorsport Competitions team creates new, original and exciting content, with life-enhancing spectator moments, at its three world-class motoring events: the Members’ Meeting, Festival of Speed and Revival. This content is carefully pieced together by a small team of dedicated motorsport enthusiasts, who spend their working days absorbed in all things automotive, preparing for each of the three benchmark-setting Goodwood events.
Goodwood is currently in the very rare position of having two vacancies within its Motorsport Content department, as the team expands. Vacancies now exist for a Planner, plus a Junior Planner, both of whom will be central to the creation, co-ordination, implementation and delivery of the vehicular content that makes up Goodwood’s headline events.
Both roles will be responsible for researching and devising motorsport themes, liaising with clubs, owners and organisations, and maintaining an up-to-date vehicle database. The successful applicants will also be responsible for the preparation of documents, correspondence, and instructions issued to all competitors. Goodwood is looking for an experienced Planner to join the team and hit the ground running, plus a Junior Planner who, while less experienced, will have a willing desire to learn.
A life-affirming passion for all things automotive (past and present) is essential for these roles, along with boundless enthusiasm and superb organisational skills. Previous experience in planning would be an advantage, especially for the more senior role, but isn’t essential, whereas attention to detail and the ability to work under pressure in a small team is vital. Both positions require flexibility in working hours, especially during the event season.
