Job Description

As the ECB cricket season is busier than ever, we are expanding the current team of ACOs to cover relevant matches and to develop relationships with key stakeholders at venues and within teams (likely to be based in and around the East Midlands).  The role will be predominantly based on site, at televised matches and additional interactive visits to teams, and at pre-season education sessions. The successful candidate may also be required to engage with members of the public believed to be breaching betting related ground regulations during matches.

The role of an Anti-Corruption Official is divided into three main project areas:

1. Pre-season preparation and planning and education

2. Cricket season

3. End of season debrief and feedback

It provides great entertainment. It teaches important skills, both physical and social.  It can help inclusion and social cohesion, bringing communities together.

The ECB welcomes applications from all backgrounds to ensure we deliver our Inspiring Generations strategy and fulfil our purpose to connect communities and improve lives through cricket.
