Your chance to get involved in one of the world’s biggest sporting events and become part of history is finally here.
Applications to volunteer at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are now open.
No previous experience is necessary for the majority of volunteering roles: the emphasis is on finding people who are friendly, welcoming and dedicated to making the Games a success.
All applications will be reviewed at the end of the process, with around 25,000 successful applicants being invited to informal interviews from April 2013.
Applicants need to be 16 or over, eligible to work in the UK and available for at least eight days during the Games themselves, which run from July 23 to August 3 2014.
David Grevemberg, Glasgow 2014 Chief Executive, said: “The volunteers will be at the heart of an unforgettable Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and the huge enthusiasm of those who have taken to social media to express their excitement and interest to volunteer has been overwhelming.”
Scotland's 541 libraries will help people without computer access to fill in application forms.
Potential volunteers can drop in to the Glasgow 2014 Volunteer Centre in Albion Street, Merchant City for advice and assistance. Alternatively you can call 030 3333 2014 or email email@example.com
