    Claire Rudd

    "My role involves statutory accounting, company secretarial, risk management, FOI and Data Protection within HRI. Assisted by a small team of dedicated professionals, we ensure that HRI's finances are accounted for effectively and efficiently. There's no typical day with such a varied role and I enjoy working with my colleagues on cross-functional teams and liaising with industry representatives and bodies.  The horse racing and breeding industries are major employers and significant contributors to the economy in Ireland and the finance function within HRI plays an important part in developing and sustaining this industry."

    "I work at Leopardstown Racecourse as the Track Foreman. We host 23 race meetings throughout the year which incorporates our four day National Hunt Festival at Christmas and day one of Longines Irish Champions Weekend. Careful planning is required to allow us to produce a well prepared and well presented track for every meeting. There is a great sense of achievement at the end of every meeting when everyone goes home safe and sound and we move on to the next day."

Working alongside motivated and dedicated colleagues in a co-operative environment makes HRI an attractive place of employment."
