About the Games
The Guernsey 2021 NatWest International Island Games volunteer team held its first information exchange and informal interview evening for individuals keen to be a volunteer Attaché during The Games.
After launching an appeal for Attachés in September, the volunteer team received more than 120 applications for the 73 places.
An information exchange evening was recently held where each applicant had the opportunity to learn more about the role of an Attaché and underwent an informal interview with members of the volunteer team.
“We were overwhelmed with the response received following our Attaché recruitment campaign. This is the first specific team of volunteers we need to secure ahead of the VIP visit by the competing islands to Guernsey next summer. By then each approved Attaché will need to have been fully trained and confident with their role,” said Wayne Bulpitt, Director of Volunteering.
“With our commitment to include as wide a range of individuals as possible, and nearly 1,000 roles to fill, we wanted a process that was of value to individuals, inclusive but enabling us to fit the right people to the right roles. We have been delighted with the feedback to our initial events where over 70 applicants attended two sessions”.
A further information exchange and informal interview session is planned for those who were unable to attend the initial evening with the aim to finalise the Attaché recruitment by the end of December.
