About Silverstone

It’s exciting times at Silverstone Heritage Ltd. The Silverstone Experience is due to open to the public in spring 2019, seeing a WWII hangar at the entrance to the world-famous Silverstone Circuit refurbished and extended to house a brand new exhibition, collections and research centre, learning and events space, café and gift shop.

Our mission is to bring the extensive heritage of Silverstone and British motor racing to life through a dynamic, interactive and educational visitor experience. As an organisation we value enthusiasm, dedication and a passion for customer service. If you fit this description and think you have what it takes to help us make this vision a reality please apply by 9am on Thursday 19th July.

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 motor sport heritage. Silverstone Heritage Ltd is a new charity formed to educate the public in the history and heritage of the site, its people and that of British motor sport. HRH Prince Harry is the Project’s Patron.

We achieved a second round award from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a £9.1 million grant in November 2016, for a project costing a total of £19.2 million. 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 that will include:

• A permanent exhibition that will take visitors on an exciting two hour journey through motor racing past, present and future, with a particular focus on the role Silverstone and the UK based motor sport industry have played in the development of motor sport worldwide. Indeed, this position at the very heart of the global motor sport industry will be celebrated throughout.
• A state of the art Collections and Research Centre, offering archive accreditation standard storage for the unique British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) Archive and other motor sport collections as well as a specialist library and learning space for school groups.
• A series of themed tours stopping off at iconic sites around the circuit.
• A programme of exciting motor sport events, talks and workshops.
• An extensive formal education programme focused on science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) which aims to inspire future engineers.

The Silverstone Experience will play a leading role nationally in creating a secure future for the heritage assets of motor sport. The BRDC library and archive is already considered to be of international significance. This project will ensure that the stories of British motor sport, the Silverstone site, its people and the engineering industry that has developed in ‘Motor Sport Valley’ can continue to be told into the future.

In addition to these planned activities, The Silverstone Experience will also feature a 100 seat café, a retail space and visitor photography opportunities.

To apply please send a covering letter including your salary expectations and current notice period with your updated CV
