Since London Olympics in 1948 volunteers are an important component of the games how LOCOG Chair Seb Coe said at London 2012 official website: “ Games Makers will help us to deliver a great Olympic Games, London 2012 relies on them.”

The Media and Public Relations department will join 50-100 generalists responsible for bringing accurate coverage of the Olympics keeping contacts with national and international media organisation.

A huge number between the 4,000 and 5,000 specialists at the Press Operation office will assist members of press providing them accurate and on-time information over the games.

The Website and New Media team composed by 50-100 generalists will exploit Facebook and Twitter to develop at the most the potentiality of the website.

Applications will be open on line from Wednesday 15th September at, where you can find out all the details.

Despite no free tickets for the games are provided and no expenses will be covered except travel expenses within London zones 1-6 and meal vouchers, Games Makers still sounds a great opportunity of having your work read from million of readers, to establish contacts with national and international media organisation, and the chance to make out of a historical event a historical experience.
