Fifers encouraged to become Volunteer Ambassadors for The 150th Open, St. Andrews
Created: 29/04/2022, Updated: 06/05/2022
We're recruiting volunteers to support The 150th Open, being held in St. Andrews on 10-17 July 2022.
You can register your interest by visiting www.fva.org/TheOpen to be a Volunteer Ambassador for the town of St Andrews and for the whole of Fife during The Open. To find out more about the Championship, its rich history and more, please click here.
The Open is golf's original championship and it returns to St. Andrews in July 2022 for the 150th playing.
The Open is organised by The R&A, who we are working with alongside our partners at Fife Council, to recruit, train and support Volunteer Fife Ambassadors - welcoming, guiding, informing and helping the many visitors who will be coming to St. Andrews and Fife during the week of the Championship.
Please note that we are not recruiting volunteers to assist directly with the golf itself, all of those roles have been filled and were significantly oversubscribed.
Volunteer Fife Ambassadors will be positioned at the main transport facilities (the official car parks, bus stops, train stations etc.) and at key locations throughout the town to maximise presence and make it easy for people to seek help.
This is an excellent employability opportunity for anyone who would like to build on existing skills and experience around hospitality, customer care and public facing work. Full training will be provided with accredited training being offered by Fife Council in First Aid, Hospitality and more. Extensive support will be available to volunteers at all times.
