We’re looking for our next Marketing and Communications Manager at Aushorse and TBA

About us:

TBA is the peak body for Australian breeders, while Aushorse is the marketing arm for the industry. TBA represents breeders with governments and other stakeholders, while Aushorse was established to drive investment into the thoroughbred industry, both from overseas and domestically.

On an international stage Aushorse creates the narrative that Australia is the best place to breed, sell or race a horse in the world, owing to our incredible prizemoney, valuable and accessible bloodlines, and strong, stable, bloodstock sales.

Domestically we promote the benefits of buying locally produced horses and also run initiatives to promote racehorse ownership.

TBA has a vital responsibility engaging with governments and representing the interests of breeders with other industry stakeholders, while also developing strategies to ensure the long term sustainability of breeding. These strategies need to be effectively communicated.

The role:

We are looking for somebody to join our team who has an abundance of energy and ideas. This is a fantastic opportunity to allow your talent to shine as the successful candidate will be given the responsibility for delivering our message to a global audience.
