A Unique Work Experience Opportunity
The TY Ninjas Programme is new work experience opportunity designed by the TY.ie Team. Transition Year students now have the chance to work with us by improving and contributing to the one-stop hub for all things Transition Year. We have always advocated for a website for students by students, which is why we want TY students to now be involved in the running of the website. We are looking for writers and designers to create a one of a kind experience for TY students.
Be Creative, Gain Experience & Have Fun!
We want to hand you the keys to TY.ie and see how you leverage them to spark your creativity. How can we help you to achieve more and create more? We encourage you to take advantage of the TY Ninjas Programme to pursue a possible career path or just have incredible fun during the year! Oh, did we mention you get rewarded too?
Prizes, Ninja Belts & The TY Ninja Award
As a TY Ninja you're rewarded for your contribution to the website. Raffles are run every few weeks and you can earn TY Ninja Belts. There are 6 belts: white, yellow, green, red, blue and black. Every TY Ninja starts with a white belt and can progress to the next belt by creating content for the website. At the end of the year students will receive their TY Ninja certificates.

Vouchers, tech, books, merch, tickets and more.
A CV is not obligatory but it is recommended as it helps us to know you better.

A ninja costume and some ninja stars…just kidding. All you need is an internet connection and a phone, laptop or PC.
