Australians are being urged to register their intent to volunteer at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, and become part of Commonwealth Games history.
The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) have opened the general volunteer registration portal and are calling on volunteers with a wide variety of skills and experience to shape the Games for athletes, officials and fans.
Volunteers will enjoy an incredible once-in-a-lifetime, behind-the-scenes experience of the biggest multi-sport event staged on Australian shores in a decade.
There will be a number of different roles across all of GC2018 venues and service areas, with more than 15,000 capable and committed volunteers required to facilitate the staging of the friendly games.
These volunteers will assist with roles of a general nature, not specific to bowls, including client and customer service, operational support, hospitality, press and media, drivers, event technology, medical services, ceremonies, arts and culture, and some related to the 18 sports competed.
Registrants are asked to ensure they nominate the sport(s) that they are most proficient in, with three (3) preferences, so GOLDOC can maximise your skillset and experience.
