Work Experience at the EIS:
Although it is not routine practice for EIS to offer work experience opportunities, in occasional circumstances where there is a lull in the sports calendar or there is some availability of suitable support, EIS has been able to provide short work experience placements for PhD and MSc level students providing there is a clear link to their course of study. We are unfortunately unable to offer work experience to school students or undergraduate students.
All work experience is managed locally and any enquires should be made to the Operations Manager at your nearest EIS site.

At the EIS we deliver a range of performance impacting sport science, sport medicine, technology and engineering solutions to over 40 Olympic and Paralympic sports along with a select number of non-Olympic sports, including Premier League Football, Premiership Rugby Union, Rugby League and Cricket.
Improving performance is at the core of everything we do and our practitioners work daily with coaches and athletes as part of their elite performance programmes. We work in multi-disciplinary teams to provide a holistic service that supports coaches and Performance Directors (PDs) in helping to improve the training, preparation and performance of their athletes.
What we do enables athletes to optimise training and practice; assists athletes to achieve peak performance at major tournaments, enables athletes and coaches to prevent, reduce and manage injuries; helps athletes and coaches to manage pressure and stress; and deploys performance enhancing technology, insight and analysis to enable athletes to develop strategies and tactics for competition.
Having a network of more than 250 practitioners and a host of external associates that work daily with high-performance sport means the EIS possesses an unrivalled web of expertise. It enables practitioners to seek advice, share knowledge and call upon capabilities, from inside and outside of the organisation, to help them address issues or problems and develop performance solutions.
We are the team behind the team.
