commonwealth games 2022

Bag yourself a dream job this summer, all thanks to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

This HAS to be better than being stuck in a shop

Finding a fun summer job can often feel like a massive chore – especially when you really need the money. You spend long, sunny months stuck between four walls selling products to people having a better time than you. Then, before you know it, it’s time for a new term and you’ve barely spent five minutes perfecting your tan or having cocktails with your mates. 

What if, this year, you switched things up? Find a job where you can spend time away, gain valuable experience for your CV or mix with international sports teams, stars and presenters. 

Not only that, but you’ll get to work in Birmingham and the West Midlands  – one of the most exciting places in the UK with LOADS of stuff to do in your free time.

No, seriously – it actually exists!! There are loads of open vacancies available at this year’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. You’ll play a vital part in making the Games as safe, smoothly-run and, above all, FUN as possible. The roles are open to absolutely anyone – especially those keen on a career in events or sport.

The best part? You don’t even need any previous experience.
