Candidates will receive their interview requests via email and where the meetings can’t take place face-to-face and applicants can conduct the interview remotely using Skype.

Applicants will also be asked to demonstrate the reasons why they have applied to become a Sochi 2014 volunteer by answering questions about volunteering and the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Questions will also be asked in English so candidates can demonstrate their language skills.

Applicants will be assessed by the number of points they receive, those who receive the highest points at the end of the interview, are likely to become volunteer team leaders at the Sochi Olympic Games. Volunteers who are involved in the test events in 2012 and 2013 will gain valuable experience working at a world-class sporting event ahead of the Games in Sochi.

Interviews will be conducted by staff from the volunteer centres and specially trained employees of the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee.
