A variety of volunteer roles will be available in both Glasgow and Edinburgh, including providing information on the conference and the venues, supporting delegates staying in and travelling around the city, and promoting the best of what Glasgow and Scotland has to offer. Volunteers will interact with delegates in and around Glasgow city centre, along the main walking routes to the Scottish Event Campus (SEC), at key transport and accommodation hubs and also at key locations in Edinburgh.
Volunteers will undertake shifts during the period 28 October to 14 November and must be available during this period. Volunteers should expect to undertake around six shifts during this time and will be invited to attend training ahead of these dates.
