Yorkshire Cricket has secured funding from the ECB to better understand how communities in Kirklees, that have a heritage and history connected to the South Asian countries of Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka wish to watch, play, coach and officiate in cricket. This post will be to help develop that understanding across Yorkshire Cricket, helping to promote best practice from a local to regional level.

Applicants need a sound knowledge and understanding of diverse communities and cultures and recreational cricket; a commitment to increase player retention and participation at all levels; proven managerial and administrative competencies; together with excellent communication skills. Knowledge and experience of cricket would be an advantage but the role is not a coaching one.

The successful applicant will be employed by the Yorkshire Cricket Board but will work under the Yorkshire Cricket banner, which includes the Yorkshire County Cricket Club and the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation.

The post is full-time, working predominantly within the Kirklees communities with access to office facilities at the Emerald Headingley stadium. A full current UK driving license is required.

For any initial informal enquiries about the role please contact Steve Archer on [email protected] or 07912-898734
To apply please send your C.V and a cover letter to Jane Hildreth – [email protected]

The closing date for applications is Monday 3rd September 2018, with interviews scheduled to take place on Friday 14th September 2018. We are looking to make an appointment for the new post holder to join the organisation in October 2018.
