The BRSCC, Britain’s premier motor racing club, has today launched an initiative designed to attract new volunteers to be part of race meeting management and administration, with a special emphasis of attracting people who can be trained as Clerks of the Course.

Bernard Cottrell, Chairman of the BRSCC and an International Race Director, is keen to see the Club attract new blood, “Many people who come to race meetings don’t know who the Clerk of the Course is, let alone what they do. Not enough people are coming forward to be Clerks and we need to attract people who will support the sport in the years to come. I’m sure there are many people who regularly attend race meetings that would like to get involved but don’t know where to start.”

The Clerks Recruitment Initiative starts now with adverts in BRSCC race programmes leading up to an assessment day on a September weekend. Successful candidates will then shadow meeting officials during the Autumn, leading up to full induction training before joining the BRSCC winter Clerks training programme.

“We’re keen to attract people with good management skills. If they can think on their feet, communicate well with all sorts of people and have good leadership and decision-making skills, then we want to hear from them. Most Clerks do between five and twenty weekends a year depending on what time they can make available and whilst the post is voluntary, it is very rewarding and puts the Clerk at the heart of the action”, Bernard continued.

People who wish to be considered should send a CV and covering letter to BRSCC, Clerk of the Course Recruitment, Homesdale Business Centre, Platt Industrial Estate, Maidstone Road, Borough Green, Kent TN15 8JL or email enquiries@brscc.co.uk putting ‘Clerks Recruitment’ in the subject field.
