Birmingham 2022 is searching for the sport presenters of the future to be part of the biggest multi-sport event to be staged in the country since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The organisers of the Games are looking for around 20 talented local people to be In Venue Hosts and Announcers, roles that will involve them engaging with the thousands of spectators expected to fill each of the official competition venues this summer.
Applicants need to be professional, confident, and enthusiastic and they also need to meet the following criteria:
- Aged 18 or over
- Live, work or study in Birmingham and/or the West Midlands
- Available for the full duration of the competition and rehearsal days (Birmingham 2022 will be held from 28 July until 8 August)
- Committed to attending training workshops which will be held in late June and early July
Martin Green, Chief Creative Officer for Birmingham 2022, said: “This is another fantastic opportunity for new talent to get involved in the Games and for them to be part of a team playing a crucial role in ensuring spectators have a memorable and enjoyable experience in our venues.
“We are looking for talented local people with an interest in presenting but who so far haven’t had the opportunity to shine, and we’d love to receive applications from people who can connect with an audience and whose passion and enthusiasm is infectious.
“The successful applicants will not only be provided with full training and support, but during the Games they will also have the chance to learn from a hugely experienced team, rubbing shoulders with presenting professionals who will be the perfect mentors.”
Applications for these roles can be made now by submitting a short audition video. Please go to birmingham2022.com for more details. The closing date for applications is 23:59 on 6 March 2022.
