Work experience

Tenerife Horse Rescue is excited to announce that we will be starting our Internship programme at the end of this month!

Ranging from 2 month to 6 months or longer, our immersive placements will give you the opportunity to gain invaluable, guided work experience for your career path, at the same time as involving yourself in nature, animals, and eco-friendly living. Experience with volunteering and internships are strongly desired commodities for employers of the future, and as Tenerife Horse Rescue is a registered charity, we can provide you with the support you need to grow and flourish in your field of interest here for a leg up in your career, not to mention an excellent reference and on-going guidance should you need it.

Our main positions for internships involve roles in our fast paced office team, which can range from nurturing relationships with sponsors to creating content or managing our social media. We are also providing placements working with our horse team, either in the week days, or full time over the weekend. Please be aware that while some roles in the office can be joined at entry-level, for any role in the horse team previous knowledge and experience of working with horses is essential.
