Job Description

Are you passionate about sport’s ability to change lives and communities, especially women?

Do you remember your favourite teacher, dance instructor, music tutor or sports coach? For so many of us, our lives were changed by these incredible people. What was it that made them so great? The chances are they made their lessons fun, had a contagious passion and were great with people. Cricket is changing and we need brilliant, energetic people like this to help us. We have a bold plan to inspire thousands of women across the country into volunteering and we are using the Cricket World Cup to make it happen. If you’re someone who is passionate about the role that women can play in inspiring kids to get active, and bringing communities together, then we want to hear from you. You don’t need any cricket experience – more important than this is an unshakable can-do attitude!

We believe cricket is a force for good that can have an enduring impact on everyone’s lives and we have an ambitious strategy to inspire a generation to say ‘cricket is a game for me’. It provides great entertainment. It teaches important skills, both physical and social.  It can help inclusion and social cohesion, bringing communities together.
