For this prestige event of such huge importance to both London and the UK as a whole, Stadium allocated 700 accredited staff to provide traffic management, stewarding and security services to 24 venues across North & East London for the duration of the London Games.
Our locations included the Olympic village itself and 20 other Training Venues, including the Media Hub at Russell Square, Wimbledon and Hyde Park.
We were able to deploy 240 staff from within our own organisation – who lived outside of London, with accommodation and shuttle buses to transport them to and from their allocated sites each day – and also recruited accredited additional staff with the required skill sets.
All this was achieved within the time frame required by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG). Our services contributed hugely to the safety and security of each of the locations at which we were present – and we are hugely proud of the part we played in achieving such a successful games.
