Volunteers will play a very important part at the Netball World Cup 2019, with approximately 450 roles being created to help stage the event.
We will be encouraging applications from people with a range of skills and backgrounds to help fill the variety of different roles available at the tournament and in the build-up to the event.
We are now inviting people interested in volunteering to register your interest before Tuesday 31 July 2018 by signing up here and ticking the box for volunteering information.
We will subsequently invite everyone who has registered their interest to formally apply for a volunteer position at NWC2019 when the official application process opens in August 2018.
If you haven’t registered with us before the deadline for expressions of interest (31 July 2018), you will not be able to apply to volunteer at the event.
I have already signed up on the website, what do I need to do?
If you have already signed up on the website and you ticked the box to receive volunteering information, you don’t need to do anything further at present. You will receive an email in August with details of how to access your account to progress your application.
When will applications open?
The formal application process will open in August 2018 for those who have registered their interested before Tuesday 31 July 2018.
Will you be conducting selection interviews?
Depending on the number of applications received, we may be required to conduct interviews for oversubscribed roles. In addition, for certain roles requiring specific skills, qualifications and/or experience, we may conduct selection interviews.
When will I hear if my application has been successful?
We are aiming to confirm all successful applications by the end of November 2018.
We will keep a reserve list of people who have not been successful in the first round of applications but wish to hear more on any additional opportunities that become available as the event planning continues.
Can I buy tickets and apply to volunteer?
We understand that people may wish to attend the event as a spectator as well as volunteer. We suggest that if you wish to buy tickets you register here to access the pre-sale from 17-27 July. You will then be able to submit your availability to volunteer during the formal application process in August.
Will you be providing uniform for volunteers?
Volunteers will be provided with a uniform suitable for performing your role.
Will food be provided for volunteers?
We will provide one meal per shift for volunteers.
Will you be providing accommodation/travel for volunteers?
We welcome applications from people based in all areas but we are unable to offer accommodation and/or travel expenses for any of our volunteers.
How many volunteer shifts would I be required to commit to?
We will be asking volunteers to commit to between six and eight shifts (a shift is a maximum of eight hours).
Will volunteers receive training?
Yes, training will be provided. Successful applicants will be expected to attend one mandatory training session in June 2019 where critical event, venue and role information will be shared. Dates and times will be confirmed to those who are successful in early 2019. We are unable to offer travel expenses for any of our volunteers to attend the training sessions.
Will there be roles for under-18s?
To volunteer in the majority of roles you will need to be 18 years old by 30 April 2019. There will be a limited number of roles available for under-18s through England Netball affiliated clubs and these will require permission from a parent/guardian.
You will be asked to provide proof of ID during the application process.
NWC2019 may be asked to perform background checks by external parties for the approval of event accreditation.
Successful applicants will be performing roles on behalf of the NWC2019 and acting as event ambassadors, and as such will need to adhere to a code of conduct that will be shared with all volunteers.
NWC2019 is an equal opportunities event and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
