We care about providing you with a job that fits your interests and strengths best. That is why we first do a short interview with all volunteer applicants. In an orientation course, we also inform you about your job and provide you with training shortly before the event.

Yes. The minimum age for volunteers at the IFSC Climbing World Championships Innsbruck Tirol 2018 is 16 years. For volunteers under 18 years, one parent or legal guardian must provide a signed consent form at the orientation course at the latest.

Do I have to speak German or English as a volunteer?

As a volunteer at the IFSC Climbing World Championships Innsbruck Tirol 2018 you have to speak German very well, ideally, your English is also very good. Depending on the job, very good German skills in both spoken and written form are necessary. The details will be given at the interview at the latest.

Do I have to be available on all days from 30.08. – 17.09.2018?

As a volunteer at the IFSC Climbing World Championships Innsbruck Tirol 2018 your working times vary according to your type of work. However, by the 6th of September latest all volunteers are starting their work. For organizational reasons we will prefer volunteers that can work within the whole period of the event.
