A Great Way to Gain Industry Experience
Students from colleges and universities across the country have
the opportunity to compete for a number of paid internships with Horse Racing
Ireland. Placements are made in each of the four HRI racecourses: Fairyhouse, Navan, Leopardstown and Tipperary as
well as HRI headquarters in Newbridge, Co. Kildare.
The internships begin in early June 2017 and run for 10-12 weeks with
each intern asked to keep a log book and write a short blog on their
experience which is published in The Irish Field.
Applications are accepted from students from all backgrounds
with an interest in the promotion of racing and the sport itself. The programme
is open to students in any college year of any course.
Students at the four HRI tracks are 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
work in the marketing department and assist with media monitoring, racecourse
events, social media and website maintenance.
*The 2017 crop of HRI interns have been appointed and are currently on placement. For further information email:
