Combined role: East Female Cricket and Disability Cricket Development Officer
Come and join one of Scotland’s most exciting community sports projects!
Cricket Scotland and Inch Park Community Sports Club are entering into an exciting partnership to offer the combined role of Female Cricket and Disability Cricket Development Officer.
The partners have the aim of `Inspiring Scotland to Play Cricket` as we seek to grow the reach and popularity of the sport to unprecedented levels. At the heart of this strategy is making cricket more accessible to all groups within our communities and having a positive social impact.
Engaging girls in physical activity and sport is a big focus for Inch Park Community Sports Club and Cricket Scotland. Cricket is a growing sport in the girls’ game, but like most sports the drop off in participation of girls from 11 onwards is a massive opportunity if we can address this.
Cricket Scotland also recognise the huge opportunity to make our game more accessible to people with a disability. Cricket has some fantastic formats that cater specifically for disability athletes and our excellent partnership with Lord`s Taverners is enabling us to roll out a new disability programme that makes a real difference in people`s lives.
The ideal candidate will be an energetic individual who can deliver across a wide range of key priorities and objectives. They will not just be able to sell the sport with enthusiasm but able to develop programmes that support girls and young women, be a champion for disability cricket, and have a passion for providing opportunities for all.
As part of the role, they’ll be able to support coaches and clubs to be welcoming and supportive to girls and young women and people with a disability, increasing the opportunities for them to engage in the sport.
If you think this is you, we’d like to hear from you! To apply, please send your CV and Cover Letter explaining why you are suited to the role to Nicola Wilson – firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the closing date for applications of Monday 25th September, 5pm.
