SIS has announced it is to support the Jockeys Employment and Training Scheme (JETS), a charity that helps jockeys plan and achieve second careers.
Under the deal, SIS staff will share their knowledge and help jockeys with career guidance and work experience placements.
SIS will also offer interview practice to retiring jockeys in addition to advice on what to expect when they retire from professional sport.
Launched in 1995, JETS has helped almost 1,000 current and former jockeys to achieve a successful career.
“Our commitment to the horseracing industry has remained strong for nearly 30 years and we are excited to become friends of JETS,” human resources director at SIS, Nicola Clark, said.
“The charity does vital work to support both current and retired jockeys and we are looking forward to getting involved with the great work they carry out.”
JETS manager Lisa Delany added: “Without the support of companies like SIS, we couldn’t help hundreds of jockeys to be aware of their strengths, attributes and transferable skills to ensure they have successful second-careers.
“SIS’ pedigree in the sport is second to none and we can’t wait to draw upon their expertise for the benefit of our jockeys.”
