The Officer will work closely with both cricket clubs and a number of community and youth groups to engage and deliver cricket activity to hard to reach and disadvantaged young people.
We are looking for someone with the experience of supporting young people facing a range of challenges, who wants to get involved in a programme that is supporting young people aged 8-19 years to get involved in sport, in particular cricket, to help them increase their self-esteem, confidence and sense of belonging. This is a unique opportunity to get involved with Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire County Cricket Clubs.
The Wicketz programme is funded by Lord’s Taverners and is aimed at providing weekly cricket playing opportunities whilst giving young people the skills to improve on their life choices, help with their physical and mental well-being and enhance their future prospects.
To be successful in this role you will need to be ‘inspirational’ and have a passion to help develop young people, be up for a challenge and love sport, show initiative, have strong interpersonal skills to create long lasting partnerships. As this is a joint post with Leicestershire the post holder must be a self-starter and innovative, reliable and flexible, be able to work evenings and weekends and be prepared to split time between Nottingham and Leicester.
