Birmingham 2022 seeking over 13,000 volunteers to deliver historic Commonwealth Games
- Applications to volunteer at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games open today.
- Volunteers will form the ‘Commonwealth Collective’ – and will be based across the region during the Games.
The search to find more than 13,000 volunteers for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games has begun. Applications open today to coincide with Volunteers’ Week, with the aim of providing a community of passionate people with the chance to play a vital role in delivering the Games in just over a year’s time.
The volunteers – known as the “Commonwealth Collective” – will be a dedicated and dynamic group that will reflect the diversity of the West Midlands as well as the modern Commonwealth.
The volunteers that join the Commonwealth Collective will be the public faces 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 to be held in the West Midlands and the biggest in the UK for a decade.
The majority of volunteer roles don’t need any formal experience or qualifications, with full training provided. Roles include drivers, first aiders, meet & greeters, venue preppers, kit carriers, courtside assistants, and everything in between to help the Games run smoothly and create a unique experience right across the region.
