Work Experience and Internships

Scottish Rugby is an exciting and busy place to work. One of the best ways of seeing if a career with Scottish Rugby is for you is to try it for yourself, and our work experience programme allows you to do just that.

Scottish Rugby offers exciting work experience opportunities for young people with a variety of experiences and skills that they can bring to us and in return we give you a varied and interesting experience. If you are at School, College or University there may be opportunities to spend some time with us seeing what makes Scottish Rugby tick behind the scenes.

Work experience placements are wide-ranging and can involve working in a variety of different environments within Scottish Rugby. Our business is not just about what happens on the pitch, although that is pretty important. There are many facets to getting the fifteen players there ready to receive the ball at kick off.
