We are delighted to be able to bring you details on this week’s featured ‘Job of the Week’ (JOTW), which is for a Spectator Services Workforce Manager at the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.


The Glasgow 2018 European Championships is a new multi-sport event which will be held in Glasgow and Berlin in the summer of 2018. More than 8,000 athletes, officials and media are expected in Glasgow and Scotland with a potential television audience of more than one billion.



Spectator Services will be known as the ‘face of the Championships’.  The Spectator Services workstream will be responsible for showcasing the famous Glasgow welcome to all spectators attending the Championships across our 15 venues instilling and inspiring memories. The volunteer workforce of Spectator Services will play an integral role in the successful delivery of the workstream.

If you are an employee of Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life or one of the Council’s Arms Length External Organisations (ALEOs) and secure a role on the Championships your substantive grade and terms and conditions will be protected, however your current role may not be.


This is a fixed term opportunity up to August 2018.
