Wednesday 5th June 2002
It's not too late to be a part of it!

Volunteers

With only 50 days to go before the Games, Manchester 2002 and Official Staffing Sponsor Adecco are calling for people to fill the last remaining volunteer positions.

They are looking for VIP transport drivers, event services/security staff and, most urgently, assistants to help with costumes and props during the ceremonies.

Amy Parrish-Rett, Volunteer Manager, said 'Our Games vehicle fleet has expanded leading us to need additional drivers, and strong ticket sales demand that we have adequate staff to ensure spectators safety and comfort throughout the Games.'

'Although we had an overwhelming response to our initial call for volunteers and an extensive reserve list, these roles do require a combination of specific skills, along with enthusiasm, motivation and the ability to provide service with a smile.'

VIP drivers, who will operate between sport venues and other official locations, must be 25 or over and have a good driving record. A sound knowledge of Manchester and the surrounding area is preferable, although training will be provided. Customer services skills are additionally important as the role involves being in close contact with VIP visitors.

The Event Services/Security staff should, for legal reasons, be between 18 and 55. These positions require confident, outgoing volunteers who enjoy working in teams and being amongst crowds.

Interested applications should call in to the Volunteer Centre on the 4th Floor of Heron House in Albert Square, Manchester on the following days:

  • Monday 10th June between 3.00 - 8.00
  • Wednesday 12th June between 10.00 - 3.00
  • Thursday 13th June between 3.00 - 8.00

Or call the Volunteer Hotline on 0870 241 7374 to get more information.
