Copenhagen calls for volunteers
It takes a lot of work from volunteers to make very big events happen. This is also the case when it comes to the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark this May.
The temporary company created by the Wonderful Copenhagen tourism organization, “Host City Copenhagen,” for the purpose of handling the host city aspect, is looking for volunteers.
The best volunteers ever
It is the ambition of Host City Copenhagen to create the best and most dedicated team of Eurovision volunteers ever. It will be the mission to secure that the audience, the artists, the press, and the citizens get the most festive, fun and unforgettable Eurovision experience ever in Copenhagen.
In order to become a volunteer, or a Delegation Host as the position is officially known, you have to know either Danish or Swedish, and also English and one of the delegation languages. You will be assigned to a country delegation with 1 or 2 other hosts and will be present from the moment the delegation arrives at the airport, to guide them through the entire event. It is important that the Delegation Hosts have knowledge about the delegation country, Eurovision and Copenhagen.
Host City Copenhagen is looking for Delegation Hosts with the following language abilities:
The Netherlands (Dutch)
San Marino (Italian)
United Kingdom (English)
You also have to meet the following demands:
- Be at least 20 years old
- Be available for 14 days
- Clean criminal record
- Sense of direction
- Be smiling, service oriented, and independent
- Be ready to go the extra mile to create the best Eurovision ever
Being a delegation host will give you accreditation with the delegation and give you a chance to get close to the Eurovision stars and experience Eurovision in the closest way possible. You will also get a uniform, meals, and a diploma when completed.
The following days require attendance:
- Early March: Information workshop
- March 16: Full day (up to 12 hours)
- April 28 – May 10: Eurovision weeks, workdays of 2 – 10 hours
Application deadline is January 12, one week from now. The applicants will be screened later in January, with short interviews and a language test. The Delegation Hosts will be selected in February.
