The Australian Racing Board (ARB) has launched its new industry employment website

The success over the past two years of the ARB’s existing site ATREC (Australian Thoroughbred Racing Employment Centre) has shown conclusively that this is a service that the racing industry wants. By investing in an enhanced service the ARB believes that even more can be done to meet the industry’s needs. will:

> Promote the thoroughbred racing and breeding industry as a career path to both job seekers and school leavers. > Limit advertising costs for industry employers and assist them in finding staff.
> Make it easier for job seekers to find vacant positions in the racing industry.
> Promote industry training in order to address the industries skilled labour shortage.

“The Australian Racing Board recongnises the skilled labour shortage in our industry, and the difficulties for industry employers in finding staff, in particular stable hands, stud hands and track riders. is a practical measure that the ARB has developed to address this” said the ARB’s Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Harding.
