Job Description

The Opportunity

Following a successful pilot in 2022, ECB Coach Development is pleased to offer the opportunity once again for seven coaches who identify themselves as female or those who identify as non-binary (assigned female at birth), to be involved with a placement experience within The Hundred 2023.

In October 2019, the ECB launched a five year action plan to transform the women’s and girls’ game with the fundamental goal of making cricket a truly gender-balanced sport.  Our ambition is to provide a clear path for women and girls to have a lifelong love for cricket

The ten point Transforming Women’s & Girls’ Cricket Action Plan therefore aims to increase female engagement, grow female representation, and improve opportunities for women and girls across all elements of the sport.

Increasing the number of women in performance coaching roles and women coaching in the professional game (men’s and women’s) is a key objective within this plan. 

Through The Hundred placement programme, coaches will be given a bespoke selection of opportunities to help build their experience and confidence of working in a high profile, professional cricket competition, involving a range of hands-on and shadowing components.

Please note that this is an unpaid voluntary opportunity.

This role is open to females, inclusive of transgender women (at whatever stage of transition) and and those who identify as non-binary (assigned female at birth).

The Role

Through The Hundred, the programme will centre on providing opportunities to experience coaching in an elite performance environment, including learning from and supporting world class male and female coaches and players.

All experiences will have real purpose and create a rich learning environment, helping to accelerate your coaching journey.

You will also receive support through the ECB Coach Development Team to help you create your own self development plan.

To be eligible for the programme, you must either be a Level 3 / Level 4 coach (or currently be on a Level 3 / Level 4 course), and you should aspire to, or currently work in, the performance game.

The location and timing of the activities will be agreed individually but will always be based around The Hundred teams.  To take full advantage of this programme you will need to be available for a minimum of a full week during The Hundred  competition period (August 2023: confirmed competition dates TBC).  This week will ensure you cover: training sessions, match preparation, pre-match talks, home and away matches, match day coaching, match debriefs and performance analysis.  Expenses will be available to help cover costs (to a maximum of £1000).


The Commitment

The programme will run within The Hundred, so you will need to have availability to take part in August 2023.  NB we will work with each participant to identify suitable dates that work for them, but please note that you will need to be available for a minimum of a full week (Monday – Sunday) within the competition period.
