Worcestershire Cricket exists to lead, support and influence the growth, quality and accessibility of recreational cricket across the county. 

We strive to connect communities and improve lives by inspiring people to discover and share a passion for cricket, as well as shifting the perceptions of our game and becoming pioneers of inclusion.

We aim to Inspire a generation to say ‘Cricket is a game for me’ using three simple words:

·         Excite – Ignite passion for the game.

·         Embed – Provide opportunities for everyone to find their place in cricket.

·         Excel – To support everyone, to become the best they can be.

As part of the ECB County Partnership Agreement and with recent governance changes we are looking to recruit a number of dynamic, innovative and committed Non-Executive Directors to lead Worcestershire Cricket for an initial three year term.

We are looking for the right balance of skills, knowledge, experience, independence and diversity to meet the needs of the businesses of the communities we work in.

Although currently a company Limited by Guarantee, Worcestershire Cricket is undergoing the process to transition the business to foundation status and ultimately becoming Worcestershire Cricket Foundation. This will allow us to continue the fantastic “good for cricket” work we currently do, as well opening further opportunities with “cricket for good” and in doing so reaching more diverse communities. Upon Transition to Worcestershire Cricket Foundation, current directors will become trustees of the foundation.

The Worcestershire Cricket Board meets a minimum of 4 times a year. In addition to serving on the main Board, Directors should expect to sit on sub committees or working groups, which could mean a maximum of 12 meetings a year.

The closing date for applications is 9:00am (GMT) on Monday 7th February 2022. Virtual interviews will be held in the afternoon of Thursday 3rd March and the morning of Friday 4th March.
