The company is the governing body for the Olympic sport of dressage and a member of the British Equestrian Federation.

The Sport Operations Manager is responsible for all areas of sport delivery including competitions, fixtures, results, grading, governance, rules and anti-doping. This role is central to driving participation in dressage at all levels, for both able bodied and para riders, regionally, nationally and internationally. In conjunction with the Head of Business Operations they will work closely with the Regional Development Officers to ensure that quality competition opportunities are developed and maintained across the company's eight regions.

The successful candidate will have excellent people management and influencing skills that have been developed and honed in a similar sport operations environment. A broad knowledge, interest and understanding of equestrian sport, and in particular dressage, would be advantageous for this role, although not essential.
