Initial release


This qualification reflects the role of persons who operate in business with responsibilities for quality outputs, supervising staff, coordinating groups, planning and developing strategic initiatives; operating in a wide variety of contexts, most of which are complex and non-routine. The size of the business requires higher-level skills particularly in the technical, planning and management areas.

Work responsibilities cover the management of racing tracks, gardens and other facilities as well as the use of tools and machinery. Planning of work rosters, supervision of race meeting staff, the preparation of budgets and capital works proposals, and management of improvement projects are also considered essential skills.

Employees will be expected to demonstrate knowledge of the impact of track and environmental conditions on racing animal welfare.

Employees may be required to handle horses or greyhounds in emergency situations and assist in marshalling prior to racing (depending on the individual's training plan).

Employees at this level are required to evaluate information for planning and research purposes and apply theoretical concepts to a range of situations.
