Helpers wanted for cricket world cup work

Auckland City Harbour News - - SPORT -

Vol­un­teers are needed for be­hind the scenes work dur­ing The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

The tour­na­ment runs from Fe­bru­ary 14 to March 29, 2015 on both sides of the Tas­man and in­cludes four fix­tures in Auck­land.

A Pool A Match will be played by Aus­tralia and New Zealand on Fe­bru­ary 28 at Eden Park, fol­lowed by Pool B matches be­tween South Africa and Pak­istan (March 7) and In­dia and Zim­babwe (March 14). A semi­fi­nal will also be played at the venue on March 24.

Around 450 vol­un­teers are needed in Auck­land to as­sist with a range of tasks around ac­cred­i­ta­tion, commercial and spon­sor ser­vic­ing, event op­er­a­tions, me­dia and broad­cast op­er­a­tions, spec­ta­tor and fan ser­vices, trans­port, VIP and hos­pi­tal­ity and work­force needs. Can­di­dates will be in­ter­viewed in May and train­ing will take place in Jan­uary.

All ap­pli­cants must be 17 years or older.

‘‘Vol­un­teers are in many cases the face of the tour­na­ment for fans, me­dia and of­fi­cials. It’s a great way for Ki­wis to be in­volved in the Cricket World Cup and help show­case the rich di­ver­sity of our com­mu­ni­ties and our abil­ity to be great hosts,’’ Therese Walsh, head of New Zealand for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, says.

‘‘We want vol­un­teers to get the most out of their ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 ex­pe­ri­ence and hope­fully use it as a spring­board for new op­por­tu­ni­ties – whether it’s vol­un­teer­ing in their lo­cal area or open­ing the door to a new ca­reer.’’
