Canoeing Ireland has an exciting opportunity for a communications intern to join our media team for the busy events period in August and September, gaining fantastic experience in sports media and communications. We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed worker to take up wide ranging communications tasks under the current communications lead. The placement will take place from mid August- mid September, involving an training period being followed with a lead role in supporting domestic Canoeing Ireland events, and providing media cover for several international events where Ireland will be competing. During this time the role will involve maintaining a presence on social media, producing digital content in-keeping with the current aesthetic, and remotely covering international canoeing competitions featuring the Irish Team. A familiarity with the sport is preferred but not a necessity.
