WorldSkills 2019 Volunteer Recruiting Center Simulator was launched in Kazan. Participants of the All-Russian Camp for the representatives of resource volunteer centers tested their skills in organizing and conducting interviews with volunteer candidates.

Testing procedure was arranged during the volunteer camp on 3-7 October 2018 in Kazan. Future recruiters, including 75 representatives of Russian regions and 25 representatives of Tatarstan, in cooperation with coaches and representatives of the Organizing Committee, master the techniques of interviewing and assigning candidates to corresponding positions during five days.

“We have carried out a recruiting process simulation. It was a good opportunity to solidify knowledge obtained by the camp participants, to feel like a recruiter, and to understand how to react in different situations. Following the results, we will formulate the list of questions and once again fix the material we have studied”, said Ayrat Mubarakshin, Head of the Volunteers Department of ANO Directorate for Sports and Social Projects.

The start of the recruiting campaign is scheduled for October 2018, and it will last till March 2019 – in the course of this procedure, the team of recruiters will have to process applications from those wishing to join the team of volunteers from around the world. 

For proper selection and assignment of candidates to their positions, the recruiter should know literally everything about the upcoming event: from the programme, venues and dates of the Competition to the specifics, objectives and requirements to each particular position. More than 100 positions will be presented.

It should be noted that almost one year has passed after fixing the volunteer recruiting centers arranged prior to the WorldSkills Kazan 2019. In the course of information and application campaign aimed at the popularization of the “Young Professionals” movement and volunteer movement of the Competition, teams of resource centers have carried out an extensive work for the last three quarters of 2018. More than 300 events have gathered almost 40,000 people. The average increase in applications from partner regions has reached 30%. 10,200 applications have been registered. The application period ends on 31 December 2018.
