How to Apply

This unique Programme starts at the beginning of July 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). Here 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 2023. There are usually placements in Marketing, Digital, Journalism and Sales, to name a few. Placements are subject to change and when you apply, you will be asked to submit your preferred area of interest and your career aspirations.

Approximately 16 to 20 places are available each year, in a variety of organisations, in locations across the UK. The programme provides an invaluable source of talent to the industry. Many of the programme’s alumni have established careers in a wide range of roles; management positions at racecourses, broadcasters, the trade press, bloodstock sales and also at the British Horseracing Authority.
