Internship details

Gain experience in the highly sought-after field of sports management, supporting a top professional football club in Argentina and an international sports charity. Interns help with day-to-day operations, marketing and communications, and liaison between your placement and international partner clubs to find opportunities for further growth.

This is a remote internship you can conduct from home.

Practical experience is essential for anyone looking to work in sports management, which means it can be a difficult industry to break into. By serving on this Sports Management internship out of Argentina, you’ll gain crucial experience and skills to set you up for a rewarding career in this high profile, popular industry.

Sports charities in Argentina work in underprivileged communities to provide fun activities and games that help young people to develop social skills, confidence and physical fitness. Interns assist by collaborating with local instructors to develop and improve exercises and drills in sports such as football, tennis, basketball, rugby and baseball.

You’ll also be able to assist with fundraising activities, including identifying and engaging potential individual and corporate sponsors. Interns can build fundraising strategies, including organising fundraising events, and develop newsletters and social media content to attract and encourage new sponsors.

Charities also host study abroad students, and interns can support these students by helping to arrange their itineraries, accommodation, transportation and other logistics.

You’ll be in close and regular contact with your supervisor in Argentina, working to your own schedule to deliver work on agreed deadlines. You will need to accommodate online meetings with your supervisor when it’s required, so there will be times where you’ll need to be available during office hours in Argentina.

In all cases, interns should expect that the initial phase of their remote internship will focus on gaining some introductory knowledge. You may start by gaining an understanding or overview of what you can build upon, develop, learn, and contribute. Ensure that you ask questions and provide feedback during the introductory period, so that your supervisor understands how you’re progressing. This will help them to better understand important details, such as how quickly you learn, what you find challenging, what you find interesting, etc.

Understand and expect that individual internship experiences vary. Therefore, if you’re at a more introductory level, you should reasonably expect a more introductory internship. Likewise, if you’re interning for a shorter duration, you will have a different experience from someone who is interning for a longer duration. Placement preferences are considered but always subject to availability.
