Badminton Scotland are once again recruiting volunteer drivers for Badminton World Championships.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our friends at Badminton Scotland are once again recruiting volunteer drivers for Badminton World Championships.

It's proving to be a very busy week here at the Emirates Arena, as our friends from Badminton Scotland move in and start prepping for the Badminton World Championships.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, they are once again recruiting volunteer drivers for Badminton World Championships.

Volunteer drivers are required to have
- clean driving licence
- have held a licence for at least three years
- be under 75 years of age and be in good health.

Volunteers will be asked to volunteer at least 6 shifts during 15th-28th August 2017, with shifts starting as early as 5am (not often, usually 8am) and some shifts finishing as late as midnight.

Organisers are operating a two-shift pattern, meaning volunteers will either be on an early shift or a late shift on any one day (not a double- shift). The driving will be mainly within the greater Glasgow area, mostly between Glasgow Airport and the hotels and the hotels and the Emirates Arena.

Volunteers may also be asked to drive some guests and volunteers to/from excursions e.g. Loch Lomond, Gleneagles etc.

For more information and to apply please email
