Jobseekers interested in working at the Olympics can register their interest.

Adecco - the recruitment provider for the Games - says most of the jobs will be in catering, cleaning and customer services.

The company adds they would like to recruit a 'diverse workforce' and help people get their first foot on the career ladder.

Fifteen thousand people registered their interest in the space of a few hours, after the process opened this morning.

Director of London 2012 Partnerships Steve Girdler has told LBC he is pleased with the response:

"That gives you some idea of how interested people are in being part of London 2012. I think its a great example of how Londoners particularly want to be part of something so special."

Tickets for the event go on sale in March.
