Applications are open for In Venue Hosts and In Venue Announcers to join the Sport Presentation team at each and every venue over the course of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. You’ll play a vital, in venue role live in front of a packed house – to ensure spectators at the summer’s must-see sporting event are informed, engaged and inspired. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – and it’s PAID!
Martin Green, Chief Creative Officer for Birmingham 2022, said: “We are looking for talented local people with an interest in presenting but who so far haven’t had the opportunity to shine, and we’d love to receive applications from people who can connect with an audience and whose passion and enthusiasm is infectious.
The successful applicants will not only be provided with full training and support, but during the Games they will also have the chance to learn from a hugely experienced team, rubbing shoulders with presenting professionals who will be the perfect mentors.
In Venue Host: This is an in vision role live to the big screens in venue. You’ll be responsible for live links, athlete interviews, spectator engagement and for ensuring fans have all the info they need to get them involved and invested in an action-packed day at each venue.
In Venue Announcer: Otherwise known as a Voice of God, you’ll be responsible for announcing the athletes on to the field of play and relaying scoring moments for all spectators in the venue. You’ll also announce the results of the competition and the Medal Ceremonies – the pinnacle of these Games.
Successful applicants will work with the team from Progress Productions – world leaders in Sport Presentation. They’ll also be mentored by industry leaders and will attend workshops with special industry guests to get them ready to go live this summer!
