An exciting, entry-level opportunity to join our small administrative team that operates the UK’s largest motorsport series, with nearly 200 drivers across six championships.
Let’s be clear from the start, this is not a glamorous role in the world of Formula One; quite the opposite. Most of the time will be spent lost in the mundanity of office/admin work and when it does come to a race weekend, it will be early mornings, late nights, wind, rain and challenges of Caterham’s limited budget and resources. When we run out of milk, you will be the person heading to Asda. Again.
However, we can promise you an entertaining, fast-paced (too fast for some) environment. Key to the role is delivering outstanding customer service both from the office and in the often adrenalin-fuelled, high-pressure atmosphere of race events. Not for the work-shy or faint-hearted, it is rewarded with immense job satisfaction. Caterham’s novice driver race series, the legendary Caterham Academy, creates more than fifty new racing drivers each year and whilst it is a cliché, you really will be helping make dreams come true.

But before you do, just read through this job advert once more before getting carried away with an application. Are you really prepared for what it would entail? Does a 25,000/day step-count not phase you? (Only on race weekends mind.) Will you mind being bossed about by the team and nearly 200 drivers? Have you remembered that most of your time will be in an office; race tracks are an occasional weekend, err, ‘treat’.
Note: Applicants who do not provide a covering letter will not be considered (we just like to hear a little about you; and sure, we know you will be claiming to be perfect for the role etc; that’s a given; but make us want to look forward to meeting you).
