Organisers are seeking to recruit 70,000 volunteers for the London Olympics.
The campaign was launched today to mark the countdown of exactly two years to go before the Olympics begin in London.
Enthusiasts who have already logged an interest in specialist positions, such as doctors, anti-doping personnel and scoreboard operators, can apply from today.
Those interested in the more numerous general volunteering positions can register to apply for roles such as ticket checking, uniform distribution and staffing helpdesks and information points on September 15.
From today people can also sign up to be a London ambassador to help guide the millions of visitors who will travel to London for the Games.
Hugh Robertson, minister for sport and the Olympics, said: ”Today we enter another new phase of London 2012 – bringing the Great British public on-board.  Volunteers are the heartbeat of every Olympic and Paralympic Games and are crucial to their success. 
”We need skilled and passionate people who have the commitment to make 2012 the best Olympic and Paralympic Games ever.”
Chairman Sebastian Coe said: ”There are two years to go until the Olympic Games begin and we want everyone to start planning their once-in-a-lifetime experience in 2012. 
”We are well on track – the venues are nearing completion and our plans are coming together.  Now it’s the public’s turn.  How will you spend the summer of 2012?  Whether it’s buying a ticket, becoming a volunteer, being part of our education or culture programmes – there are hundreds of ways you can get involved.”
