Job Description


The Hundred is a sporting event like no other. World class entertainment, the world’s best players and the women’s and men’s games on equal footing. It is the highest profile new sports event to launch in the UK for many years and received extensive media coverage, broadcast across Sky Sports and BBC Sport.  The Hundred boasts partners who share our passion and energy for high-class sport and entertainment. The department is fun, energetic and lively with a “start-up” mentality.


As the Team Marketing Executive you’ll be responsible for executing local marketing plans and brand activations for the Trent Rockets with a focus on diverse communities. The Hundred’s aim is to broaden cricket’s appeal by engaging both current fans and attracting new audiences to the sport, and these roles will be focused on growth audiences, particularly ethnically diverse communities, families and female audiences within Nottingham and the surrounding areas. This role will deliver a key component of The Hundred’s audience strategy with an emphasis on building brand affinity for the Trent Rockets, driving ticket sales at Trent Bridge and engaging the local community.


The England and Wales Cricket Board is the national governing body for all cricket in England and Wales, supporting the game at every level – from grassroots to professional.

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.

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.
