2014 Games Volunteer applications now open


The search for up to 15,000 volunteers for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games starts today as applications are now open. Applicants have just under seven weeks to complete their online form with a closing date of 28 February.


No previous experience is necessary for the majority of roles with the emphasis on finding people who are friendly, welcoming and dedicated to making the Games a success. Those suited to more specialist roles can list their skills on the form, while there is a wide range of general opportunities in areas such as transport, spectator services and sport competition.




All applications will be reviewed at the end of the process with around 25,000 successful applicants then invited for informal interviews from April 2013 onwards. Around 1,000 interviews a week will take place at the purpose-built Volunteer Centre until the end of the year.
