We are pleased to be able to offer a limited number of intern placements for students who are looking to gain work experience as part of their higher or further education course.

If you are looking to learn from experts in the sport events industry who combine immense talent with a passion for outdoor events, this could be the perfect placement for you.

Interns will be exposed to activities across the business as well as possible live events. Common weekly roles could include:

Logistics & Account Management
• Supplier liaison
• Creative searches e.g. hospitality ideas and entertainment
• Booking accommodation and transport
• Researching relevant material for client presentations
• Final pre-event administrative jobs e.g. packing event vehicles, printing signage
• Printing and filing documentation
• Answering queries in the Threshold event inboxes
• Managing event fulfilment; wristbands, packaging, timing chips
• Writing up minutes from internal or client meetings
• Creating info sheets e.g. taxi numbers, local train stations

At Threshold Sports we create extraordinary outdoor challenges with extraordinary outcomes for people of all abilities whether they be employees in global companies, celebrities or just plucky individuals looking for a challenge. We do this because we believe that More Is In You™.

Our Public Events
We create unforgettable public participation events; from epic rides that span the entire length of Britain such as the ‘Deloitte Ride Across Britain’; to 2-day challenging sportives like the ‘Dulux Trade London Revolution’; to multi-day ultramarathons through historic World Heritage sites, ‘Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones’, ‘Race to the King’ and ‘Race to the Tower’.

Our Corporate Events
We build bespoke corporate and charity events to meet a variety of our clients’ objectives; from employee engagement and wellbeing to charitable fundraising, leadership, brand building and client entertainment. Amongst many others we’ve worked with Vodafone, Bupa, Diageo, RBS, Sport Relief

The Future
The people who work at Threshold are united by a love of the outdoors, pushing themselves and those around them and squeezing as much fun out of work along the way as possible. We are a tight team with a lot of expertise that we are excited to share with this exciting industry’s future talent.


Interns will be respected like other full-time members of staff and therefore expected to maintain the same high standards and conduct the same behavior as all Threshold employees. So, as well as a strong passion for challenges and the sports marketing/events world, we also look for a number of specific attributes in an individual too:

• People who want to be the best they can be and are prepared to improve
• People who will go the extra mile
• Decent, caring, honest, humble and thoughtful people who have a sense of humour
• People who put the team ethic first
• People who have grit, resilience and determination to succeed

We relish individuals who demonstrate being:
• Hard working and diligent
• On the ball, and who use their initiative
• Accurate and precise
• Willing to adhere to company processes and practices
• On time and organized
• Tidy, friendly and polite
• Creative, conjuring up new ideas and concepts away from the norm
• Blessed with common sense!
