The Australian Racing Group is taking expressions of interest for various roles within the organisation.

ARG has openings for the role of Operations Manager, Category and Event Manager, as well as other roles within the organisation.

The positions have become available due to the continued growth of the organisation, its categories and its events.

ARG operates several high-profile race categories and events, including the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series, Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS, Gulf Western Oils Touring Car Masters, Kumho Tyres V8 Touring Car Series, National Trans Am Series and S5000.

It also holds the rights for events such as the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour, Supercheap Auto Bathurst International and AWC Race Tasmania.

The organisation works with its categories and stakeholders in a collaborative style and excellent communication and customer-focused attributes are critical for success in these roles.

Australian Racing Group Chief Operating Officer Liam Curkpatrick is looking forward to testing the market.

“There’s lots of talented people around and we’re in a position of the cycle in the business where the company continues to grow, we’re managing six categories and promoting five events at the moment, so there’s lots to do,” Curkpatrick said.

“We’re at that point where you know where we are trying to bolster the management stocks and help the current staff that we’ve got manage the load we’ve got.”

Candidates ideally will have relevant experience in these or similar positions within high-level motorsport or have a good understanding of motorsport operations.

“We’re a small team of people that work very closely together, so we’re looking for team players, people that work well with others, flexible in terms of scope and the roles,” Curkpatrick said.

“It’s nice to get experienced people but it’s not overly necessary as well. I mean, people can learn roles.”

Curkpatrick said that the organisation had been planning the recruitment drive for some time.

“We’ve been planning to do this for a little while now, it’s just been such a busy start to the year, we started in February and this time of year we have about a six to seven-week break between rounds, so it is a perfect time to recalibrate and execute the plans to bolster the staff,” he added.

“We are interested in seeing who is out there, we are happy to talk to anyone really to see what they’ve got to offer.”

Curkpatrick said it is an exciting time to join the organisation.

“I think looking at the recent announcements with Garry and Barry Rogers increasing their commitment to ARG and motorsport in Australia it is an exciting time to become part of the organisation,” he enthused.

“There’s been plenty of growth in terms of events this year, the volume of work involved with our categories, there’s quite a bit to do, the work diverse and it’s exciting with the travel potential as well.”

An immediate start is available for the successful applicants for the Operations Manager, Category and Event Manager roles.

The ability to work out of ARG’s office located in Melbourne is preferred but not essential, while the roles require a need for interstate travel and flexibility in working hours.

A competitive remuneration package will be offered to the successful candidates.
