Queensland looks to volunteers to deliver successful Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games
Transport and Commonwealth Games Minister, Stirling Hinchliffe has announced applications for the Games’ jobs would open on February 6, 2017, with volunteers also able to pre-register online.
“Queenslanders have a proud tradition of volunteering to support major events and there is none bigger in Australia this decade than the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast,” he said.
“The 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast will need 15,000 volunteers with diverse skills and life experiences for crucial roles at multiple locations including Games venues, the Games Village and the Uniform and Accreditation Centre.”
Specialist training for GC2018 will be provided by TAFE Queensland at no cost to Games volunteers.
Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) chairman Peter Beattie said volunteers will help make the Games great.
“The contribution of GC2018 volunteers will help promote the Gold Coast to athletes, officials and spectators who will attend the Games from across the Commonwealth,” he said.
“Volunteering at the Games provides so many people with an opportunity to share the dream, which has been at the heart of the event since the Commonwealth Games began.”
