My name is Teresa Keith, the volunteer coordinator for the upcoming Taekwon-Do World Championships, in October 2017. Are you interested in volunteering in one of our many jobs available for the tournament? Do you have a special skill set that would help us to create the greatest tournament ever to take place in Ireland? The following jobs are in need of being filled.
The Set Up and Breakdown Crew of the arena is to help unload and reload equipment from trucks. Assist in the set-up and breakdown of the competition arena, warm-up and training areas (e.g. laying down mats, setting up barriers, tidying up). Also assist in any decoration of hotel and conference rooms. This job will need a massive number of volunteers, but fortunately is a once off job.
The Marshals of the area will cover the warm up and training areas, the gates to the competition floor and the medal awarding area. These volunteers will need to guarantee the delivery of athletes to the designated areas and to keep non-essential people out of the sectioned off areas. The marshal’s job is to make sure the competition stays efficient by ensuring all competitors arrive on time.
The Scoring System Operator will help ensure the IT needs are met for the tournament.
The Front Office Desk and General Query Desk will check ID badges for clearance, ensure all guests are appropriately greeted and answer any queries presented in an efficient and courteous manner.
The Seating Patrol will help with crowd control and aisle clearance as per health and safety regulations.
The After Party Preparation and Set up for Congress will help to decorate the areas, set-up equipment, tables and chairs and assist in any other needs necessary.
We are also looking to recruit children and involve them in this exciting event. We have two roles where envisage they can be involved. Firstly we are looking for children for the Opening ceremony to accompany the athletes from around the world on the athletes parade and secondly to assist with the medal awarding ceremonies on each day of the event. This will be a wonderful opportunity for children who practice Taekwon-Do to get up close to the world-class athletes and the Masters and Grandmasters from around the world.
These are the list of jobs we are currently trying to fill for the tournament. It is going to take a great number of people to fill all these positions. Our goal is to set-up a roster to ensure all positions are covered but also to meet the needs of our volunteers as well. All I need from you is an email giving me your name, contact information and availability for volunteering. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me. My email address is Teresa@ballinroad.com or my phone number is 087-6924830.
