Get Involved Glasgow

Glasgow Life has launched volunteer recruitment for the next three major sporting events to come to Glasgow; LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships, LGT World Men’s Curling Championship and UEFA EURO 2020. Applicants can choose which event they’d like to be involved in, whether it’s one, two or even all three! Taking place in one of Europe’s most vibrant and welcoming cities, volunteers have the chance to get involved with some of the biggest international sporting events in the world.

Applications are open Monday 22 July 2019 and will close on Sunday 25 August 2019 for a variety of roles including supporting spectators and visitors to the city during the events. Find out more.
