With just under two years to go until the London 2012 Games, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has launched the official Games Maker programme. This marks the start of the process to recruit up to 70,000 volunteers who will make the London 2012 Games happen: Games Makers.

Volunteering at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. LOCOG will recruit volunteers from across the UK – from a range of communities and backgrounds. The selection process will be transparent, open and fair.

If you’re selected to be a London 2012 Games Maker, you will be vital to the Games, representing the UK and delivering services that are essential for a successful and inspirational event. You will have the opportunity to use and develop your skills and play a key role in one of the largest and most memorable events ever to be held in the UK.

Why volunteer?

  • The main benefit of volunteering is the chance to play an integral role in one of the most exciting events ever seen in the UK.
  • The Games will provide a unique and inspirational setting for volunteers to gain experience and develop their skills.

How to apply

You can apply online at london2012.com/volunteering from 15 September.
