Continuing its youth development and training schemes, Racing UK’s Racecourse Media Group (RMG) has announced Shelley Birkett and Jason Kiely as recipients of its new Media JETS Traineeship.
Joining the development program, the RMG’s young apprentices will learn all aspects of modern media dynamics including presenting, punditry, digital production, marketing and PR.
Shelley, who is 23 and based in Malton North Yorkshire, has ridden 77 winners on the Flat. She said: “I am delighted to have been selected for the RMG – JETS traineeship. I am looking forward to gaining new skills on the course.
“The training will hopefully stand me in good stead for a career in the media in the future and I feel very fortunate to be given this opportunity.”
As always, the Boxatricks team are enormously proud of our racing superstar, and have no doubt she’ll make a huge success of her entry into the world of media, too.
