Volunteering opportunities

Volunteer Working Fields:

SPORT: As a sport volunteer you will work right where the Crankworx athletes show their best performances. Either as a course marshal, with timekeeping or at the Riders Lounge – you will make sure that the sport events run smoothly and all participants are informed about the latest events of the day. As a volunteer in the sport team, you should enjoy physical activity and be ‘weather resistant’ because most of your work will be outside.

VENUE MANAGEMENT & LOGISTICS:The venue crew makes sure that the coordination of all operative and logistical processes runs smoothly – during and after the sports events. You will help to set up and dismantle the general venue. You work on the venue and course branding, help with the installation of temporary facilities and if you like to do manual work there are also tasks here for you. During the event, you will also take on activities such as purchasing goods or distributing goods in the venue.

CLIENT SERVICES: In the Client Services area, you will be working directly at the interfaces to our client groups. Whether at the accreditation booth for employees, volunteers & media representatives, the welcome desk at the VIP area or in the middle of the action at the event area at various information points for visitors. You are service-oriented and enjoy a task that brings you in contact with people from all over the world? Look no further – this is your favourite volunteer job!

MEDIA & COMMUNICATIONS: Such a spectacular event like Crankworx attracts attention and the interest of the national and international media to Innsbruck-Tirol. As part of the media & communications team you will support producing content for social media channels, create texts and organise photos. All of this will be rounded off by you taking care of the media areas, where you will meet the media representatives and answer any questions they may have or assist them wherever necessary.
