Leicestershire County Cricket Club are recruiting a Community Talent Champion in order to further develop its links within the diverse communities of Leicester.  The Community Talent Champion will be responsible for identifying and bringing talented players from non-affiliated inner city cricket activities to the LCCC Academy boys and girls pathway.  We are on a new journey and have the ambition of growing the #FoxesFamily.

The Community Talent Champion (CTC) will be responsible for nominating players of potential (in the U11 to U14 age range) to the Leicestershire CCC ‘Academy boys Talent Pathway’ and Leicestershire Women and Girls Pathway. The CTC will then be responsible for observations of the nominated players, organising, delivering and reviewing, in conjunction with the Core Cities Programme Manager, assessment days or matches for nominated players and building on the relationships with key community members.

The CTC will liaise closely with Head of Academy to ensure links between nominated players and the formal county talent pathway. The CTC will continue to provide developmental feedback to nominated players, their nominator and any other individual as necessary.

Throughout this programme the CTC will identify any barriers to participation in the county pathway, report these to the Leicestershire CCC Head of Academy and develop a strategy for the removal.

The CTC role is a 1 year contract with the intention to continue the programme having reviewed its success and viability after year 1.

The successful candidate will receive role specific training from the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
