Recruiting Now: Glasgow 2018 European Championships

Recruitment is starting now for an exciting new multi-sport event bringing together some of the continent's leading sports.

This summer, Europe's top athletes will compete in Glasgow and Berlin for the inaugural European Championships.

As the sole Security Service Provider for Festival Venues, SecuriGroup will be providing hundreds of security personnel for the biggest sporting event to come to Glasgow since The Commonwealth Games!

The event is going to be held in and around Glasgow, and will include aquatics, cycling, gymnastics, rowing, a triathlon, and a new golf competition.

About the Glasgow 2018 European Championships

Taking place for the first time in 2018, the European Championships will be a new highlight on the global sporting calendar. To be staged every four years, the event will be a must attend, must watch experience that reaches beyond the dedicated fans of the individual sports to a much wider audience.

The first edition will be held in partnership between Glasgow and Berlin with 4,500 athletes set to take part.

As part of the event, around 3,025 athletes will compete in Scotland with a total of 8,500 people, including officials and media, expected in the country during the Championships.

The event takes place between 2 and 12 August 2018 and will take Scotland's sporting reputation to the next level.

Played out in front of a potential television audience of up to 1.03 billion people – with many more across digital channels – the event will elevate the status of European Champions.

George Square will be the heart of the festival during the Championships, bringing the city centre to life over the 11 days of sporting action. SecuriGroup will be there every step of the way to ensure that a safe and enjoyable time is had by all who attend.

This is a very exciting opportunity for everyone at SecuriGroup – we cannot wait to start preparing for such an iconic and prestigious event.
