A day in the life of a racecourse wigwammer
By: Rachael, redwigwam
If you’ve worked with us before, you’ll know every job with redwigwam is different.
Whether you’re out on a mystery shop or working behind a bar, flexible working always keeps our Wigwammers on their toes.
Today, let’s talk about a day in the life of a racecourse worker, and the fantastic new opportunities we have working at racecourses across the UK!
So, what opportunities do you have?
We have two exciting roles available as a Washroom Cleaner & Litter Picker.
Which racecourse is the work at?
There are three locations available, Newmarket racecourse, Market Ransen and Huntingdon Racecourse.
What do the jobs entail?
Both roles require working at exciting venues ensuring the locations are clean and tidy.
The Little Picker role involves picking litter to an excellent standard, ensuring spaces are clean and tidy, removing litter from specific locations as per schedule & reporting any health and safety issues.
The Washroom Cleaner involves cleaning the washrooms of the racecourses to the highest standard whilst maintaining equipment, stores and complying with health and safety. This will include mopping, sweeping, and ensuring all the toilet / washroom facilities are immaculate.
Both roles have the same aim, to make sure the racecourses are clean and tidy whilst maintaining health and safety!
Do you require experience?
No experience needed – full training on the role is provided!
Will racecourse events look good on my CV?
Events like these require hard work, especially if you’re working to maintain the cleanliness of the venue – and experience like this always looks good. Once you’ve worked the role, you can add the following to your CV:
- Time management – you will be working to a schedule and splitting your tasks up accordingly. This will help develop your time management skills.
- Customer service skills – working at a busy event means you’ll be in contact with lots of customers. Although you won’t be working with them directly, they may come to you if they have any queries.
- Working as part of a team and individually – working for big events involves a lot of teamwork, but also involves working independently to complete your tasks. You will learn to complete your own tasks, whilst also giving your co-workers a helping-hand too.
- Fully trained – you will be fully trained on the role, meaning you will be able to take on many roles like this in the future and take up roles that may require more experience!
