Below you will find descriptions for each available volunteer role at the Games. During registration you will be asked to pick your top 3 preferences:
There is no cooking required for this area of volunteering, you will be assigned to one of two main areas:
We are expecting in excess of 4,000 registered family members to travel to Sheffield. Our Families Programme volunteers will provide a welcome centre where they will collect their accreditation passes to access the Opening Ceremony and Competition. Wherever there are families, there will be Families Programme volunteers to provide support, information, conversation, and a listening hear to hear all those stories throughout the week about how athletes have got on and to share the celebration in each achievement. There will also be a Families hub that will provide light refreshments and a variety of entertainment and where Family members can meet up informally and get to know each other.
Please note the Families Programme supporter – Lions Clubs International (MD 105) – will be recruiting the majority of volunteers from their members so please ensure that you select two other preferences as the number of volunteer roles in this area may be limited.
There will be a Competition Manager and experienced qualified Officials assigned to every sport ensuring that all National Governing Body roles and regulations are adhered to and the quality and integrity of the sport is maintained to the highest level. The requirement for volunteer roles in this area vary from sport to sport.
The number of volunteers assigned to Field of Play roles are a relatively small percentage of the overall number of our volunteer team, so please ensure that you select two other preferences so that we can offer you an alternative role if that is the case.
Volunteers in this area will ALL be required at least two days pre-Games to assist with taking delivery of the large consignments of equipment that will be delivered on site, assist where, appropriate with the reception of any small temporary structures, ensuring that all goods received are signed for and stored in an organised and safe manner. Attention to detail is key in ensuring that time is maximised by only moving an item once and that everything is logged.
It is envisaged that volunteers will work closely with the Look and Signage team. We are hoping that most if not all volunteers will also assist with the tear out and close down at the end of the Games.
