The Horse Racing Ireland Student Internship Programme was launched in 2014 and is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain industry experience and enhance their CVs. Students will benefit from mentoring by experienced professionals while developing their practical skills and gaining a competitive edge for when they enter the job market.

    Students from colleges and universities across the country have the opportunity to compete for a number of paid internships with Horse Racing Ireland. This year, we have placements available in our HRI Marketing Department, HRI Communications Department, Leopardstown Racecourse and Tote Ireland.

    The internships begin in on June 5th 2018 and run for 10-12 weeks with each intern asked to complete a weekly learning log. The programme is open to students in any college year of any course. 

    Interns will be required to assist in many areas  such as marketing, event management, sales, social media, website maintenance and race day operations. 

    The 2018 Interns have been announced
