British Swimming has launched its new Volunteer Training Programme, which has been awarded the London 2012 ‘Inspire’ Mark. If you want to gain experience at national and international events to prepare for applying for volunteer roles at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, then read on.
If you have been dreaming of becoming an Olympics 2012 volunteer while also helping swimming to provide the maximum number of events at the highest level of delivery during the Games, then you may want to consider British Swimming's Volunteer Training Programme.
Carrying the London 2012 Inspire Mark, the Programme aims to provide volunteers with the opportunity to gain experience at national and international events to prepare them for applying for volunteer roles at the Olympic and Paralympic Games.This will also help British Swimming deliver an increased number of events and support the Olympic and Paralympic Games with trained and experienced volunteers.
The official London 2012 volunteer application process will open in 2010 and this recruitment, selection and appointment process is managed entirely by London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (LOCOG).
British Swimming do not have any decision making status within this recruitment process but through the Programme are offering support, guidance and training to any volunteers that have the required skill set for the positions available in order to support their application.
If you are interested in applying for the British Swimming Volunteer Training Programme it is not essential that you already have volunteering experience. The training programme will equip you with the skills you need to successfully fulfil roles at aquatic events. If you are interested in applying please click here to download an application form.
