Event Presentation Manager (seasonal fixed term contract 4mth FTC May-August 2021)

We’re introducing this exciting role to support on the event presentation delivery, ensuring that the spectator is at the heart of every matchday experience.

In 2021, ECB is introducing The Hundred, which will be a world class cricket tournament for both the men’s and women’s game designed to broaden the appeal of the sport.

This will be the highest profile new sports event to launch in the UK for many years and will receive extensive media coverage, with games live on Sky Sports and BBC.

In addition, there is a packed International schedule which will require a similar level of focus to ensure the event presentation is at the heart of the event.
