Deputy Head of Veterinary Policy (DHVP), IHRB

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board (IHRB) is the regulatory body for horseracing in Ireland, responsible for the integrity and reputation of Irish racing and the licensing of its participants on an all-island basis. The IHRB has in recent years undergone significant change in the veterinary and equine anti-doping space.

This is a new opportunity for an experienced equine veterinary surgeon based at the IHRB offices on the Curragh to combine hands-on work in the field as a regulatory veterinarian with driving change through managing and leading the Department’s key policies and projects in this area, including those within the IHRB’s Strategic Plan.

Working with the Deputy Head of Veterinary Operations and Senior Veterinary Assistant, the DHVP will also provide expert veterinary policy advice to the CVO/Department. Given the nature and seniority of the role, it is essential that the DHVP works flexibly and out of hours as required to share responsibilities with the other senior leadership roles within the Department.

The closing date for applications is Monday 9th October.
