This qualification reflects the role of persons who operate in business with responsibilities for quality outputs, supervising staff, coordinating groups, planning and developing strategic initiatives, and operating in a wide variety of contexts, most of which are complex and non-routine. The size of the business requires higher-level skills particularly in the technical, planning and management areas. Employees at this level are required to evaluate information for planning and research purposes and apply theoretical concepts to a range of situations.
Responsibilities may also include the overall management of race club or regulatory authority administration services, developing budgets, preparing improvement and/or marketing proposals as well as providing services to committees or boards.
While they may not be required to handle horses or greyhounds, employees with this qualification are often required to work close to race animals. For their own safety, the safety of others and the safety of animals, employees must be aware of potential risks and hazards associated with animal behaviour.
