Terms and Conditions


Working hours are typically 37.5 hours a week, however the workload is significant, and we require commitment and flexibility in order to achieve our company objectives.


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 the week in the office. This may be subject to variation depending on the role and you may be required to travel occasionally for external meetings or events.


We have a great new building located in the fantastic Bicester Heritage site with plenty of break out spaces and areas to collaborate. We also know 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.


Our mission is to celebrate and enable participation in motorsport in a safe, fair, fun, inclusive and progressive environment. As an organisation we are committed to fostering a workplace where everyone can perform at their best whatever their background. We therefore encourage applications across all ethnicities, religions, age groups, sexual orientations and gender identities.
