Based at Trent Bridge, the NCB is the governing body responsible for all Recreational Cricket in Nottinghamshire. It forms a critical part of the three pillars of cricket in the county, working in collaboration with Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club (NCCC) and the Trent Bridge Community Trust (TBCT).
The NCB comprises professional officers, committee members and staff from NCCC, who work alongside a team of Non-Executive Directors each with their own area of specialism gained from professional industry.
In terms of its County Cricket and its Test Match venue, Nottinghamshire is widely acknowledged to be a high performing cricketing county. It is also recognised as being a leader in Recreational Cricket and Community Sports Partnerships. The NCB is focused and committed to maintaining and developing this leading position.
As a result, we are looking to recruit two additional Directors for the following areas of responsibility:
Director - Participation & Growth
To support the Participation & Growth Development Officer in:
● Developing the game in new non-traditional markets for adults, juniors and families
● Supporting the participation base for community-based casual cricket
● Supporting growth opportunities in multicultural societies
● Identifying possible partnerships with community-based bodies
This role would ideally suit someone with experience in community-based sports and activities (not necessarily cricket) and with contacts and experience of working with multicultural groups.
Director - Inclusion & Diversity
To support the Inclusion & Diversity Development Officer in:
● Developing the game for women, girls and disability groups
● Driving inclusion across all areas of the Board’s activities
● Working with key national and local stakeholders to ensure that all opportunities for funding and growth are optimised
● Developing specific community projects focusing on women, girls, disabilities and equity
This role would ideally suit someone with experience working in a sports environment and with Local Authorities and other public bodies to achieve funding and development aims.
Both roles are unpaid and in the nature of non-executive directorships, guiding and assisting the professional staff in the Commercial & Development team.
The successful candidates should expect to dedicate between 5 and 10 hours per week to the roles.
Both roles will provide an opportunity to become part of a committed team and develop the future of the recreational game in Nottinghamshire. If you are interested in either role please send your CV together with a covering letter to:
Cricket Development Manager
