FAQs - Work for Us
How can I keep up to date with your job vacancies?
Do you offer secondment opportunities?
Yes. We would like to encourage as many people as possible to become involved in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Employment with us can come in different guises, but we will advertise all our opportunities actively through our website and within the local community.
Will the job be permanent and if not, when will the contract come to an end?
The majority of our roles are advertised on the basis of a fixed term contract that will expire after the Commonwealth Games have been staged in August 2014, or sooner in the case of short term roles.
Is previous Games experience a prerequisite for getting a job at Glasgow 2014?
We are looking to attract as many people from the local community as possible to work for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Whilst a limited number of specialist roles will require previous experience of working in a multi-sport competition environment, the vast majority will not and experience gained in other sectors will be given equal consideration.
How does the selection process work?
Our selection processes are designed and managed to promote fair and equitable treatment and equality of opportunity regardless of age, disability, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or marriage and civil partnership.
Selection interviews are competency-based to ensure that selection decisions are made against objective criteria relevant to the candidates’ knowledge, skills and behaviour particular to the specific role.

Where are the Glasgow 2014 jobs based?
