We are delighted that so many volunteers from previous years have signed up to volunteer again in 2019. In these newsletters we will be highlighting some of the roles on offer and asked some of our workforce about their past experiences:
Steve, Media Centre Runner
‘I signed up to this event as I volunteered at the Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham last year, and now having met my partner who was involved in the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds in 2018, I decided to offer my services with her in Leeds this year.
Previously my role has been at the finish line alongside the ITU officials. I have also assisted photographers and other media officials in arranging where they needed to be for the medal ceremonies. This linked well with another volunteer role that I have as part of the media team at Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
I feel that the best way of experiencing the volunteer programme is to be flexible and open to all new ideas. Be honest about your skills and experience and you can impress with your ambition to learn and get things done efficiently. Make sure you have that extra spring in your step and never be afraid to ask a question.’
