  • Expect to be on duty between 0900 until play ends and equipment is packed away (approximately 2000) on Monday, 22nd April

  • Hold any domestic arbiter qualification (e.g. a minimum of Level 1 in England)

  • Have a FIDE Arbiters Licence – English arbiters can contact  to arrange this.

  • Bring a computer with them in order to use Swiss-Manager or ChessBase as required.

 

The 4NCL will provide you with:

  • Travel expenses reimbursed at 30p/mile if driving, or the cost of a train paid by the Organiser within one week of the end of the Congress. Please note that applicants from outside Great Britain will only be allowed to claim travel expenses from the time they arrive in Great Britain (e.g. when you arrive at a London airport, or from London St. Pancras if travelling by Eurostar).

  • A tournament allowance of £225, paid by the Organiser within one week of the end of the Congress.

  • Upon a satisfactory performance, arbiter norms of the following type:

     

    • ECF Level 2

    • FIDE Arbiter

    • International Arbiter, but only if there are a minimum of 100 players in total in the three FIDE-rated sections. The 4NCL cannot guarantee that this Congress will receive this number of entries at this stage.

 

Applications must be received by 12pm GMT on Monday, 4th February 2019. A sub-committee of the 4NCL Board will then contact all applicants within two weeks to inform them whether or not they have been appointed as an arbiter to this event.
