Head to Expo 2020 Dubai by joining the Bahrain Pavilion as a volunteer.

Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Expo to take place in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region and runs from October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022. Of course, Bahrain is one of 192 countries taking part and Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) is inviting volunteers to become part of the Kingdom’s stunning pavilion.

Volunteers are integral to the success of all BACAsponsored events, and their contribution and knowledge will be the pulse of the pavilion. Those chosen to take part will experience a once-in-a-lifetime event from within and gain vital experience towards their educational and professional development.

Passion and energy are the underlying traits for all prospective volunteers, as each person will be representing the Kingdom as a whole. As spokespeople and representatives of Bahrain, volunteers will undergo a short induction about the Expo and Bahrain’s history, heritage and culture.

Great communication skills and sociability are also valuable traits as the volunteers will act as guides to the Pavilion, which is running under the theme of ‘Opportunity’. They will be expected to offer authentic insights to a diverse, international crowd.

If you are bilingual, multilingual or have a working proficiency in different languages, the Expo is a unique opportunity to showcase your linguistic abilities. Volunteer hosts and hostesses must be able to communicate the experiences of Bahraini society with clarity and fervour. Those with media literacy, coordination and/or organisational skills are particularly sought. As are those with event planning or logistical experience.

BACA is looking for a diverse set of volunteers who are passionate and knowledgeable, and have an interest in travel, culture, media, new experiences and people. Opportunities are open to all applicants over the age of 18 who are fluent in Arabic and English, hardworking and willing to collaborate.

If you are interested in joining BACA for the Expo 2020 Dubai, send your resume and a 500-word essay describing your interest in the Kingdom of Bahrain Pavilion and national participation at the Expo 2020 Dubai.

The application form is to be completed online on www.culture.gov.bh and the deadline for submissions is June 24, 2021, 11.59pm (Bahrain Local Time). ✤
