Internship opportunities around the world for young people and athletes, delivered by the IOC ACP through Adecco

As an elite athlete you have specific traits and you have acquired many transferable skills during your sports career that are invaluable in a professional capacity. By engaging early with organisations through internships, full-time or part-time job experiences you can boost your sports and workplace career which will help you achieve life-long success.

Keith Lewayne Ricks, US sprinter and Olympic hopeful, currently in a one-year internship with the Global Adecco team for the IOC Athlete Career Programme states:

“Gaining work experience through internships as a young athlete has been invaluable. While I am training to make the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, I am also training for my future career after sports.”
