To bring alive the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games Normandy 2014™, the Organising Committee is recruiting 3,000 volunteers from all over the world! Your commitment, skills and passion are an integral part of the event. Only these qualities will enable the 1,000 competitors and their horses to perform at the best of their abilities in front of the 500,000 visitors expected to attend the 15 competition days in Normandy.
Whether you come from our neighborhood or the other side of the planet, you will share with an entire region, the pride of hosting the greatest equestrian event on earth.
Volunteers are entrusted with numerous missions and each of these assignments is part of making the event a success: Meet and greet, communications, transportation, technology, health, safety and event services, to name just a few.
Each volunteer through his or her commitment, skills and smile is at the heart of the event. We count on them to be the smiling face of the Games in Normandy from 23 August to September 2014 !
Volunteers, you are the spirit of the Games!
