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 CV's. 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. The internships begin in June and runs to the end of August 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, IT, Finance and Racing Administration.

    Applications for the Internship programme are closed.
