Between Thursday 30 August and Sunday 2 September, over 1000 young athletes will compete across 11 sports, five of which include a disability competition, at venues across Loughborough University's Campus. For us to successfully deliver the event we need around 400 volunteers, who will act as representatives for the event, so we are looking for friendly, outgoing and reliable volunteers to fulfil a variety of roles. It is through this event we aim to reward and recognise a diverse workforce of skilled, trained and enthusiastic volunteers and inspire them to continue their volunteering journey beyond this event. Fields of sport are: Athletics, Canoeing and Rowing, Cricket, Cycling, Hockey, Laser run, Netball and Triathlon.
For the majority of roles, no specific experience is required, as training (including safeguarding training) and briefings will take place prior to the event to ensure that you are fully prepared for your role and responsibilities, you will also be required to complete the relevant checks. For some roles, it will be beneficial, but not essential, to have knowledge of the University campus, have experience of working with young people in a sports based setting, have good communication and listening skills, be able to follow instructions and be able to work on your own initiative, as well as work effectively as a team. Volunteering opportunities on offer: Games Services – Pre Event Volunteer – Team Attache – Venue Volunteer
As a volunteer you will receive School Games branded event kit and a packed lunch during your shifts.
