First steps into the World of Motorsport- looking for work experience opportunities
Posted by: Barbara - Posted: May 11, 2021
My name is Barbara.
I am head over heels in love with motorsport, especially with the formula series. A few years ago, I had the chance to look behind the scenes of a race weekend, and I was completely overjoyed. It was amazing to see how much hard work it takes to make a race happen. On that day I realised, that this is what I want to do in the future, this is the place, where I want to work. The bustling paddock, the sound of the engines and the smell of the fuel is something that calls me back to the track.
A brief description about myself:
I am a first-year law student at the University of Vienna, and I graduated in an Austrian Highschool in Budapest. I speak English and German fluently (C1 language certificate).
Although I have never worked in the world of motorsport, I have some working- experiences as a hostess by an open-air theatre and in international summer camps.
Therefore, I am sure, that my coordinating and fast-learning skills as well as my acquired knowledge are adaptable for the trackside work.
As I am studying, I am only able to work in my summer break (July, August, September). During these months I am open to any type of trackside (voluntary) work, as I would like to gain some work experience and learn from the experts first-hand to base my future.
I would be delighted to make my first steps in the formula series (incl. Formula-E and the W-Series) alongside a racing team (legal departments of racing teams would really interest me) or helping the PR (Hospitality) department or any other available opportunities might interest me.
It would be marvellous, if anybody could help me to make my first steps into this amazing world!
