And to continue: “Although the basic contracts last one year, we hope that most of the profiles recruited can be part of our team until 2024.“.

Recruitment organizers hear “focus on candidate skills” instead of focusing on resumes and cover letters. Recruiters will not have access to these documents during interviews.

After registering on an online recruitment platform, candidates will have to answer a questionnaire to show their motivation. Once selected, they will participate in a webinar to test their knowledge of the Olympic Games.

Organizers hope to grow from 750 people today to 4,000 by 2024.

The Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be held from July 26 to August 11, 2024.
