Inglis Inspections Inglis
Inglis has opened applications for the 2023/24 Inglis Internship program where one lucky candidate will undergo 12-months of full-time work with the prestigious insurance and bloodstock company, with duties focused across all areas of the business.
Commencing in October, Inglis is seeking applications now from all interested, particularly those in their early 20s who are looking for a career in bloodstock.
The Internship commenced in 2006 and the recipient was James Price, the now Victorian Bloodstock Manager of Inglis, and he said that the Internship creates an incredible opportunity to work with one of the most respected businesses in bloodstock.
“When the program was first brought to my attention in 2006, it was the first year that Inglis had offered this 12-month program to give a relatively young person an opportunity in the industry,” Price told TBV.
“I went through the application process and was the extremely lucky one to be appointed the Intern.
“I applied not thinking that I would get in, but luckily enough I was chosen and that is what we are asking people to do, to throw their hat into the ring for this intake.”
The suitable Intern will be given experience at both Oaklands Junction in Melbourne and Riverside in Warwick Farm. Price said that the emergence of the digital landscape and online sales will be a big part of the candidate’s role.
“Our main focus is our bloodstock arm, the buying and selling of racehorses,” Price said.
“When I started in 2006, that was our traditional sales which happened in Melbourne, Sydney and also Scone.
“That has very much evolved into the bi-monthly Inglis Digital Sales which take up a lot of our time.
“The successful applicant will be incorporated into the team to help manage those online sales, but also be involved heavily in the next six months which is focusing towards yearling sales next year, and the selection of those yearlings.”
Price finished by saying one piece of advice for anyone looking to be involved in the program, or are hesitant towards applying.
“If you are even mildly thinking of working in the industry or even better, for Inglis, we strongly encourage you to send in your application. If we know who you are post the application process, who knows what doors that might lead to.”
To apply for the Inglis Internship, send a current CV (with appropriate references) and a cover letter explaining why you feel you are a worthy candidate for this role to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications close 5pm on Friday August 18.
