Are You Going To Be A Games Maker?

LOCOG started telling people whether they'd been accepted as Olympics volunteers yesterday, and we're dying to know if any Londonist readers have been selected.

'Games Makers' will have responsibilities ranging from giving directions at transport hubs and ticket checking to helping out around the Olympic village and events. We were intrigued to read an insight into the interview and selection process over at the excellent Why Miss Jones blog a few months back, but those chosen to fill out the press release are physiotherapists from Dundee, Persian speaking software engineers from North West London and primary school staff from Newport.

Conditional offers (which reminds us of going through UCAS) will continue to be made until the end of the year, so don't be downhearted if you haven't yet heard.

If you're over 18 you've missed your chance to get involved, but applications are now being accepted for Young Games Maker roles, for 16-18s.
