Reporting to: Head of Commercial Operations

A new and exciting opportunity has arisen to lead the Retail shop operation at The Silverstone Experience, opening in late spring 2019.

Summary of The Silverstone Experience

Silverstone has been synonymous with motor racing since the mid-20th century. It is now one of the most famous sporting venues in the world. However, Silverstone has a much wider story to tell and its place in history was established well before the circuit was even constructed. The Silverstone Experience will tell the ‘whole’ Silverstone story – one that can only be experienced by visiting the site itself and interacting with the multi-layered stories that are woven into the fabric of the modern racing circuit.

Through the creation of The Silverstone Experience as a centre of focus and understanding, with extensive exhibition spaces, a Collections and Research Centre, Learning Studio and a series of site tours, programmes and activities, the heritage of Silverstone can reach a far wider audience than before and ultimately cement its position as the centre for British motorsport heritage.

The project will open in the spring of 2019 and is set to attract over half a million visitors in its first twelve months of operation.

The project vision is to bring the extensive heritage of Silverstone and British motor racing to life through the creation of a dynamic, interactive and educational visitor experience.
