With modern trackside accommodation and a performance-led clubhouse to enjoy close-up viewing of top-level racing, we have created a space which seamlessly merges hospitality and motorsport in an original way – right on the edge of the iconic Silverstone racetrack.

Account Director

I’ve had a pretty colourful career pre-Troika – I’ve been a bell boy, a waiter, sold Faberge Eggs and electricity door-to-door, ran an Irish Pub in Uganda, a busy events department in Covent Garden, designed stands for a TV Festival, helped open a members club and ran a little events business of my own.

As a candidate, Troika were my go-to recruiters so there was no other place I wanted to be when I decided on my new career path. I’m delighted to be working with such an amazing team and am passionate about matching the brightest talent to their perfect role.
