Interested in working or volunteering for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games?

If you are aged between 18 and 30 and not in education or employment, there is support available to help you access Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games employment and volunteering opportunities.  

The West Midlands Combined Authority has received £700,000 of funding from the National Lottery to help young people from across the West Midlands to learn new skills, secure employment or become a volunteer in the B2022 Commonwealth Games (volunteering applications open 1 June 2021).

What support is available?

You will get dedicated, personalised support to help you apply for Games’ time roles including assistance with applications and preparation for interviews, as well as support to help you secure further training, volunteering or work after the Games has finished.
