Leicestershire County Cricket Club (LCCC) is one of eighteen first-class county clubs within the domestic cricket structure of England and Wales. It represents the historic counties of Leicestershire and Rutland. Founded in 1879, LCCC’s proud legacy pre-dates Leicester Tigers RFC and Leicester City FC as the first major professional sports club in the County. 2023 is the 25th anniversary of our second County Championship win, and a decade since our record-breaking third T20 Blast triumph.

LCCC is proud to be part of such a multicultural City and County. We are committed to serve the community, to equity, diversity and inclusion at every level and in every aspect of the Club, from Board to players to staff. LCCC’s commitment is demonstrated by having the most diverse Board of any County and is proud to be the 1st County in the history of English Cricket to have a female Chair. We are proud to have 6 of our Academy members from a BAME background and to be one of the ECB Pilot Counties who have appointed a Community Talent Champion.

The Board as a whole is collectively responsible for the Club achieving these aims, for promoting the success of the Club by directing its affairs, for constructively challenging and helping to develop strategy, for directing the decision-making process of the senior management team and being the critical friend, and for assessing the performance of management in meeting agreed goals and objectives. In a nutshell, the Board is responsible for the success of the Club.

We are looking to recruit a Nominated Non-Executive Director with an expertise in community engagement and diversity. This Non-Executive Director will be responsible for driving our mission at board level to encourage a more diverse membership pool and more diverse participation at both LCCC and within cricket in Leicestershire more broadly.

Leicestershire County Cricket Club recognises and encourages the benefits of greater board diversity and an inclusive culture. As such, we are keenly looking to build a more representative board of the populations we serve and welcome applications from under-represented groups including women, individuals from Black and Asian communities, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people. Addressing equality, diversity and inclusion will help the Board to make better decisions, stay relevant to those it serves and deliver its public benefit.

Previous board experience is not essential, although a willingness to help champion the sport and a commitment to enable our vision is vital.

Terms of Appointment: The appointment is for a three-year term; it is non-executive and non-remunerative with reasonable expenses covered.

Time Commitment: The Board will meet up to six times per year with an overall anticipated time commitment of 10-15 days per annum, although this can vary.

To apply, please submit a CV and covering letter, detailing how you fulfil the role description and personal specification,

The closing date for applications is 9am (BST) on Monday 16th May 2022.

Following this, Perrett Laver will meet with the Selection Committee to agree upon a shortlist of candidates. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an informal conversation with the Vice-Chair on Friday 27th May, and an in-person interview with Leicestershire County Cricket Club on Friday 10th June.
