Olympic Volunteer Roles up for Grabs

WITH less than two years to go to the London Olympics Games, the event organising team has launched an appeal for general volunteers to help the event go smoothly.

Branded Games Makers, the latest batch of volunteers will hold general roles rather than specialist handball roles, but will play an equally important part in making the event a big success.

Roles such as ticket checkers, costume assistants, welcome desk staff and event stewards all need to be filled, so if you haven’t volunteered yet - now is the time to get involved in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Sebastian Coe, Chair of LOCOG, said: “Volunteering with us will be challenging but the rewards are life-long as our London 2012 Games Makers will literally make history happen.

“We want the best team players in the UK to apply, people who show the same qualities as our athletes including dedication, focus and grace under pressure.

“Whatever your role, you will help welcome the world and show what the UK has to offer. If you have what it takes to be a London Games Maker, apply now!”
