We are looking for a student or recent graduate to undertake a work experience placement this summer at the All England Jumping Course, Hickstead.

Priority will be given to those currently in full-time education, whose course requires them to complete a work placement, though other students/graduates seeking an internship position will be considered. Candidates must be able to commit to at least 24hrs per week each week, and 40hrs during the shows themselves. 

This placement will give the student wide-ranging experience of working for a major equestrian event. The focus will be on social media and marketing, though there will be an opportunity to assist the other departments during the duration of the placement.

The intern will work predominantly with the Press and Marketing teams in the run up to and throughout Hickstead’s two major international events, the Al Shira'aa Hickstead Derby Meeting (24-28 June) and the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup of Great Britain at the Longines Royal International Horse Show (21-26 July), and will spend both weeks of the shows helping as part of the Press Office team. The internship can start anytime from April up to the beginning of September, with some flexibility regarding start and end dates.

The candidate should live within commuting distance of Hickstead in West Sussex, or have suitable accommodation for the period of their internship. A basic rate of pay will be provided, to cover general expenses.

  • Scheduling posts on Social Media
  • Managing photo and video content
