Established in 1939, the NSW Greyhound Breeders, Owners and Trainers Association (NSW GBOTA) has two prime business functions:

  1. Delivery of industry advocacy on behalf of its membership
  2. Operation of racing and trialling venues within NSW, including: Wentworth Park, Appin Way, Bathurst, Bulli, Gosford, Gunnedah, Lismore, Maitland and Temora.

Currently the NSW GBOTA membership is in excess of 1200 participants located across the width and breadth of the State. NSW GBOTA Advocacy represents greyhound racing participants on industry related issues, and functions as the major industry voice on industry matters. The NSW GBOTA works with a range of stakeholders with the primary goal to improve conditions and outcomes for participants and their greyhounds, with the welfare of greyhounds the highest priority for the Association and its members.

Reporting to the NSW GBOTA Board of Directors, through the Chairman, the General Manager provides strategic support to the Board that facilitates a commercially viable and dynamic organisation. Through the Association’s two divisions; GBOTA Racing and GBOTA Advocacy, the General Manager will ensure oversight and improvement of racing operations, so to provide maximum commercial returns and enhanced customer experience.

In addition, the General Manager will ensure strong relationship management and redevelopment of the Association’s profile to provide membership growth and advocacy outcomes which improve returns and deliver an industry framework that creates participant sustainability and confidence.

To be considered for this challenging role you must have a demonstrated track record in managing and growing like-sized businesses with proven strength and experience across the core functional responsibilities of leadership, governance, relationship management, financial accountability and commercial management. You will be an analytical, innovative and strategic thinker with the demonstrated capacity to provide timely, compelling and concise advice to inform Directorship and stakeholders to support decision making.

The role requires a confident communicator who projects credibility and delivers cultural change in an environment of scrutiny whilst engaging and developing lasting, positive relationships with the stakeholder family.

A background in greyhound racing is not required; however an understanding of the issues impacting the racing sector would be highly regarded.

This role presents an opportunity to deliver meaningful change to an industry whilst growing and redeveloping a longstanding state sport organisation.
