How to Apply

Applications for the British Horseracing Development Programme 2023 are now invited. The British Horseracing Development Programme (formerly known as the British Horseracing Graduate Development Programme) is well known and highly regarded throughout the British Horseracing industry.

This Programme, which has been running for over for 30 years, provides an invaluable source of talent to the sport and its supporting industry.  It provides participants with valuable employability skills and experience whether they chose to stay in the racing industry or pursue a career elsewhere.  The Programme was renamed in 2021 and is now an early careers programme suitable for candidates with Degrees, Higher Apprenticeships or equivalent skills and capabilities.

The Programme

This unique Programme starts at the end of June with a FREE 2 week residential induction course in Newmarket, a market town in the county of Suffolk, often referred to as the Home of British Horseracing. The course is packed with lectures, tours and visits. Following this course, is a paid (on or above the National Living Wage or London Living Wage if the placement is based in London) industry placement starting immediately and lasting for at least 8 weeks (some are longer depending on the business need) where you can apply the knowledge learnt from the 2 week course to excel in your selected placement. Take a look at the placements that were on offer in 2022. There are usually placements in Marketing, Digital, Journalism and Sales, to name a few. The placements for 2023 will be confirmed in the New Year and are subject to change. At this stage, you will be asked to submit your preferred area of interest and your career aspirations.

Who can apply?

This is an early careers programme suitable for candidates with Degrees, Higher Apprenticeships or equivalent skills and capabilities, who are looking to develop a career in the sport of horseracing. Candidates who are completing a degree or higher apprenticeship should be in their final year or have finished their studying.
