Cricket Scotland has started the search for a new permanent Chief Executive Officer to lead the organisation through what will be a significant period of change.
As the governing body for the sport in Scotland, Cricket Scotland has a simple vision – to inspire Scotland to choose cricket. The mission of the organisation is to promote, grow, support and govern Scottish cricket at all levels, from grassroots participation through to high performance.
The successful candidate will lead the strategic development, inclusivity, operations and wider promotion of the game in Scotland. This will be done in conjunction with a talented senior leadership team who have specific responsibilities for participation, high performance and the central business support functions such as commercial, operations and finance.
The CEO will work closely with both the Cricket Scotland Board, the Cricket Scotland Council and a number of key external stakeholders such as the International Cricket Council (ICC) and Scotland’s national agency for sport, sportscotland, to deliver the vision and mission of the organisation.
Cricket Scotland welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and communities to help ensure that it best represents those who are passionate about the game. The organisation is particularly keen to encourage applications from ethnically and culturally diverse communities, and disabled people – who are currently under-represented within Cricket Scotland.
Interim chair of Cricket Scotland, Sue Strachan, said: “We are looking for a leader with a proven track record, to take us through what will be an exciting but challenging period for our sport. As well as being a natural leader our new CEO must be able to ensure both the equity and inclusion of all key groups is fully considered when making strategic decisions.
“The new CEO must also be an ambassador for Cricket in Scotland and above all demonstrate through their actions, and champion throughout the organisation the values of Cricket Scotland. As an organisation we recognise the challenges of consistently putting these words into action – collectively we both want and need to do a better job.”
