IRFU Remove Job Ad For Unpaid Internship

IRFU Remove Job Ad For Unpaid Internship

The Irish Rugby Union has removed a job advertisement posted last week for an unpaid internship which required applicants to have a Masters degree or a PhD.

The application, which was for a National Sports Science Intern, was widely condemned online and the IRFU have since removed the ad and stated it was posted "in error." As reported by RTE, the IRFU claimed they do not have unpaid intern positions within the organisation.


The full-time role was for a candidate capable of working with databases and large data sets and required the successful candidate to have a known record of published research and a recognised CPR and First Aid cert.

The IRFU said the ad has not been approved yet and that details will be forthcoming.
