Horse Racing Ireland Student Internship Programme

Students from colleges and universities across the country have the opportunity to compete for five internships with Horse Racing Ireland for the summer of 2016. Placements will be made in each of the four HRI racecourses: Fairyhouse, Navan, Leopardstown and Tipperary, as well as HRI headquarters in Newbridge, Co. Kildare. 

The internships will begin at the end of May 2016 and will run for 10-12 weeks with each intern asked to keep a log book and write a short blog on their experience.

Applications will be accepted from students with an interest in horseracing and the promotion of racing, although the programme is open to students in any year of any course.

Students at the four HRI tracks will be required to assist in many areas of racecourse operations such as marketing, ticket sales, social media, website maintenance and race day operations. The head-office-based intern will be placed in the marketing department and will assist with media monitoring, racecourse events, social media and website maintenance. 

The application process aims to give students experience in the job-seeking process by sending an application along with a CV and cover letter to Horse Racing Ireland by March 7th 2016, following which suitable candidates will be called for interview. Successful students will receive a weekly payment.
