Worcestershire CCC seeks to identify and appoint a new Chair to join and lead our Board. This is an opportunity to lead the Board at a time of exciting change. The Club’s promotion to the first division, coupled with the appointment of Ashely Giles as CEO, emphasises the ambition and positive trajectory of the Club.

We are looking for an individual who can help lead and guide our Board and support the executive in ensuring we continue to move forward, and explore new opportunities for the Club. Along with the Directors and supported by a capable executive team, you will be integral in helping shape the strategy for the Club for the future, ensuring good governance, exploring and assessing commercial opportunities and supporting the CEO who also acts as the Director of Cricket, where necessary.

The successfully appointed candidate will demonstrate senior leadership experience within their respected field, an enthusiasm to help set strategy, experience in change management and provide guidance and insight as we explore future opportunities for the Club. Strongly inclusive and empathetic in their approach, they will be collaborative and consultative, helping to drive collective decision-making in a complex, multi-stakeholder environment. They will bring a passion for cricket and the power of sport as well as a strong appreciation for the role of contemporary governance. Demonstrating balanced judgement, absolute integrity and excellent communication skills. We are particularly seeking individuals with existing non-executive experience, with experience at Chair level considered advantageous.

As a commitment to our values, we welcome and encourage applications from anyone who shares our commitment to robust commercial operation and good governance, cricketing excellence and our profound community engagement. We particularly encourage applications from women, Black, Asian and minority ethnic people, those from LGBTQ+ communities, and individuals with disabilities with a desire to increase the representation of these groups at Board level and beyond.


The closing date for applications is Monday 4th March 2024.
