On 23 July 2014 the XX Commonwealth Games will launch in Glasgow. This world-class event will draw thousands of athletes and hundreds of thousands of spectators from across the globe, as well as the attention of the world`s media onto the city. A key objective of the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee is to ensure that we maximise the opportunities available to the community within Glasgow and Scotland and ensure that the Games leave a positive lasting legacy for years to come.
The Technology Division is responsible for delivering and operating high quality, integrated, cost effective and reliable information technology solutions necessary for staging the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Technology will be critical to the success of the Games - it essentially acts as a service and support provider to all other Glasgow 2014 functional areas to enable business and Games outcomes to be achieved. It will be responsible for undertaking the planning, procurement, development, implementation, testing and operation of all technology systems and services which are identified as necessary and appropriate to support Glasgow 2014 and the Games.
Results Technology Services (RTS) is responsible for the capture and display of timing, scoring and measurement data in the field of play; applications to manipulate and deliver the results data to clients and results operations and services for client groups to manage the competition.
The Internet Results Service (IRS) and the results Television Graphics (TVG) are both critical and highly visible public facing elements of the Glasgow 2014 results service.
The Internet Results Services/ Television Graphics Coordinator will support the Games Information Services (GIS) manager in the preparation of the development and testing plans for IRS and shall manage the delivery of the Television Graphics package, reporting to the RTS General Manager. This role will work closely with the IRS and TVG suppliers, Host Broadcaster, and Broadcast and Look functional areas. During Games-time this role will transition to the Technical Operations Centre (TOC) to supervise the IRS and TVG operations and support the Venue Results teams.
Initially as part of a small team, this will be an evolving position and responsibilities will change over time (including greater definition) given that the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee is a rapidly evolving organisation working against inflexible deadlines in a complex environment.
This is a crucial role for Glasgow 2014 so the importance of the Internet Results Services/ Television Graphics Coordinator contribution to the Games cannot be underestimated. Imagine the sense of pride and achievement that comes from being a part of the team that makes history and leaves a positive lasting legacy for years to come. Team history. Be part of it.
