Core working hours are Monday to Friday between 9.00 am and 5.30pm based at Head Quarters, however this role requires attendance at Motorsport UK events and therefore some weekend and evening working will be required with some flexibility to meet workload.

At Motorsport UK we believe in encouraging a healthy balance between in person team cooperation and giving our people flexibility to help manage their life outside of work. For us we think the right balance is a day at home and the rest of week in the office. This may be subject to variation depending on the role.

We also know that the commute and commitments either side of the working day can be hard to manage so we allow a flexible approach to start and finish times within core working hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm.
