Glasgow 2014 hunt for volunteers

With 609 days until the start of the Commonwealth Games (as of Wednesday, November 21), Glasgow 2014 is on the hunt for the friendliest faces and seeking them to register their interest now at ahead of applications opening in mid-January.

The contribution of the Games Makers during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was widely recognised as a success story and Glasgow 2014 will be seeking its own volunteers to help deliver the largest sporting and cultural event ever hosted in Scotland.

The Volunteer Centre in Glasgow’s Merchant City will act as a hub, hosting an anticipated 1,000 interviews a week for the huge range of volunteer roles; the interviews are due to start from April 2013 onwards.

Lord Smith, chair of Glasgow 2014, said: “I would urge those considering being a volunteer to register their interest online at the first opportunity and for them to begin to think about how they personally could assist Glasgow 2014 in making this an event to remember.”
