The British government has started advertising for people to fill strategic Olympic administration positions, in time for the Olympics 2012 being hosted in London.

An advertisement in the Sunday Times invited applications for the posts of chair and chief executive of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).

The ODA will oversee the construction of key venues and infrastructure projects for 2012.

Olympics Minister Tessa Jowell said:

"We need to ensure we have the highest calibre candidates for these roles. I hope that some of the brightest stars in business and public life will want to take up this challenge.

Ensuring that the venues, transport and infrastructure for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games are delivered on time and on budget is an enormous job, and will require great skill in organisation and communication.

The 2012 Games will be a showcase to the world - all eyes will be on London and Britain and what we can deliver for the Olympic movement

The closing date for applications is 30 September.
