Attachés and their vital role

We have just launched a campaign to recruit around 80 Attachés for our Guernsey 2021 NatWest International Island Games. This may seem a long way off, but the Attaché is one of the most vital roles to ensure our Games run seamlessly; we will require a special team of highly trained people well ahead of our Games.

One of the first to sign up for the role of Attaché is our Bailiff, Sir Richard Collas, who by 2021 will have retired and will have a little more time on his hands. He has met many Attachés over the years and is excited to be volunteering for this role when Guernsey plays host in two years’ time. Listen to his thoughts about the role of an Attaché by clicking here.

So what does an Attaché do?  

They form a direct link between the host and visiting islands.  They are the face and voice of the organizing committee, transferring invaluable information to all island representatives. 

“A good Attaché can be the difference between a smooth-running Games or one which is constantly playing catch up,” explains GIGA Games Director, Jon Marley.

You can also find a little more detail about what the attaché role entails, the skills required and training provided by reading the full job description here.
