Vacancy for Commonwealth Games: Government personnel including Army officers encouraged to apply for posts of directors and project officers

THE Organizing Committee of the Commonwealth Games, 2010, has begun to hunt talent within the government as it urgently required to fill up posts of directors and projects officers for the mega sports event scheduled to begin in Delhi in less than 10 months' time. In a recent advertisement, it has specifically mentioned that armed forces personnel including Captain, Major and Colonel and other government personnel and officers, both retired and serving, are eligible to apply for the posts of project officers and directors.
Though non-government personnel who are involved in administration of sports are eligible to apply for the posts, there was an emphasis on "proven background of working in large work environments", indicating that those who are with the government have a better chance to grab the opportunity. The minimum number of years of work experiences required for the director's post is eight years whereas for the project officers' posts, it's four years.

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said in a recent interview with a leading London-based newspaper Sunday Times that he could engineer social change on his own terms, "outside of a big government bureaucracy" when he defended his globe-trotting social work and rasing of funds. The 56-year-old politician who set up Faith Foundation and has earned money thanks to his after-dinner speeches, called himself a "social entrepreneur" in the interview.
