Newcastle searches for Olympic Ambassadors

Newcastle City Council is looking for local people to volunteer for the Newcastle Ambassadors
scheme, in preparation for the Olympic and Paralympic Games later this year.

As well as hosting both Men’s and Women’s football matches, group matches, and two quarter finals, Newcastle will also be a host city for one of the visiting nations.

City leaders predict that this will result in an influx of extra visitors to the city, and are now looking for volunteers who will be based throughout the City during the games to support spectators. They will also help to represent the City in other London 2012 Games related activities.

Newly appointed ambassador coordinator Kris Hartridge commented: “We’re looking to recruit a large number of local people who are passionate about the region and the London 2012 Games.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in celebrating our City while the eyes of the world are upon us!”

Ambassadors will play a key role in welcoming visitors to the City, and will offer advice on how to get around, information about places to for and things to do, while promoting everything that Newcastle has to offer.

If you are interested in this role, and aged 18 or over, please email or contact on 0191 232 6616.
