Request a reference

If you’ve got your sights set on your next career step, you can request a Rider Information Pack through the Rider Academy. The pack will include confirmation of when you worked with us along with an overview of your earnings. This info can be shared with potential future employers, or with landlords or your bank if you’re considering renting or buying a new home.

If you’ve helped us feed lots of hungry tummies and ridden with us for at least 9 months, you or a family member can apply for a Rider Academy scholarship. Scholarship recipients will be given the opportunity to gain an Associate’s level degree in the field of their choice within just 6 months. Click here to learn more.
