To help with us find over 1,000 people to join the team at Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, we’ve appointed Gi Group as our official recruitment partner. These roles will be available over the next two and a half years to plan and deliver the biggest sports and cultural event ever held in the West Midlands.
Gi Group already has a team based in our headquarters in Brindley Place, Birmingham. They are providing end to end recruitment services for the Games, including job profiling, onboarding and an outplacement programme which will assist all Birmingham 2022 staff with finding their next career move from August 2022, once the Games is over.
Paulo Canoa, Country Manager for Gi Group UK and Ireland, said
“As a keen sportsman myself and a former professional basketball player this is hugely exciting for me personally. Being ultimately chosen as the professional Recruitment Process Outsourcing services provider, and particularly for what is providing one of the most critical aspects, the people resource, of such a historical and popular sporting event as the Commonwealth Games makes me extremely proud of the talented team we have in place across the Gi Group of companies.”
The Birmingham 2022 team is currently 70 employees strong and works with other Games partners including the Commonwealth Games Federation, Commonwealth Games England, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), Birmingham City Council, West Midlands Combined Authority and West Midlands Police. However, Birmingham 2022 leads on key areas such as the sports programme, venue management, transport, security, marketing and PR, ticketing, the volunteer programme, the cultural programme and the opening and closing ceremonies for the Games.
Excited to be welcoming another sponsor for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, Ian Reid, Chief Executive Officer, said
“We are extremely pleased to have Gi Group onboard as our Official Recruiter. We’re adding vacancies to our website every single week, so there’s lots of exciting opportunities to apply for right now. We are already employing scores of people from across the West Midlands and we’d love more local people to join the team, so they can be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase their region to the world.”
