Volunteers are wanted for the World Gymnastics Championships being held in Liverpool from late October to early November.

Up to 600 roles are available across five departments including operations, hospitality, digital & media, commercial and sport.

No experience is required to become a volunteer and applicants from all backgrounds are welcomed.

Volunteers must show a willingness to learn and commit to the minimum shift requirements.

World Gymnastics Championships Workforce Manager Kate Halliday said: “Volunteers will have the opportunity to be a part of one of the largest international sporting events to come to Liverpool.

“At this Paris 2024 Olympic Qualifying event, volunteers will have the opportunity to

“Learn new skills and develop existing ones, meet new people, make incredible memories, and be a part of the WGC2022 team bringing this major event to life.

“Applications to apply to volunteer at the World Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022 are open until the 27th February 2022.

“This is an outstanding and unique opportunity for university students to gain valuable experience delivering a world-class event.”

Volunteers will be required to complete at least 5 volunteer shifts between 29 October and 6 November 2022.

Each shift will average 8-10 hours and volunteers will need to be over the age of 18.

Halliday spoke on why Liverpool was chosen for the Championship event:

“The City of Liverpool was selected as the host city for the 51st FIG World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Liverpool 2022 in 2018 following a combined bid between British Gymnastics, Liverpool City Council and UK Sport.

“Liverpool has a rich history in hosting major international sporting events with a reputation as one of the leading cities in Europe for staging events.

“The city is also widely regarded as the ‘spiritual home’ of the sport and the Championships will be held at the M&S Bank Arena, the home of the British Championships since 2011 and Liverpool’s premier entertainment venue.”
