An event of the size of EuroSkills 2020 can only be organised with the help of some 500 volunteers. They are important “ambassadors” of the event and will make sure that the event runs smoothly and is professionally organised. They are the faces of the event and shape the impression our national and international guests will have. They will be the liaison officers and points of contact for 100,000 visitors, 600 contestants from 28 nations and about 100 sponsors. While the event profits from their enthusiasm, the volunteers will also benefit from being part of the EuroSkills 2020 family for one intensely exciting and emotional week. They will gather important practical experience, get to know new jobs, they will be part of an international network where valuable contacts can be established and they can look behind the scenes of a great international event.
