The search to find more than 13,000 volunteers for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games has begun. Whether you have never volunteered before or have a specific skill, we would love to see some people from the district join the volunteer programme and participate in this fantastic opportunity.
The applicants that join the Commonwealth Collective volunteer programme will be the “public face” of Birmingham 2022 and represent the heart and soul of the Games experience for athletes, officials, spectators and a global audience of over one billion. The Games is the largest sporting and cultural event ever held in the West Midlands and the biggest in the UK for a decade.
The majority of volunteer roles do not require any formal experience or qualifications with full training provided. Roles include drivers, first aiders, meet & greeters, venue preppers, kit carriers, courtside assistants, to help the Games run smoothly and create a unique experience right across the region.
Applicants must be aged 18 by 1 January 2022 and can select preferred areas of interest, which include Event Services, Accreditation, Transport, Sport and Media. A young volunteer programme for 14-17-year-olds will begin recruitment in the autumn.
25,000 shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview at the Volunteer Selection Centre between September and December 2021, which will be held at the iconic Library of Birmingham. Successful volunteers will be notified of a role offer from January 2022.
Applications are now open to be a volunteer at Birmingham 2022 and join the Commonwealth Collective. To apply and find out more, visit: www.birmingham2022.com/get-involved/volunteering
