VACANCY: Crick-EAT Officer

VACANCY: Crick-EAT Officer – The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation
Contract: Full Time
Contract type: Fixed Term (4 months)
Salary: Competitive Salary and Benefits

The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation is the official charity and community arm of Yorkshire County Cricket Club. Using the power and brand of Yorkshire Cricket, the foundation runs community projects across the county, to support people and communities to be the best they can be.

The work of the Foundation falls under four themes which are: – Health & Wellbeing – Education – Participation – Heritage

The Foundation is going through an exciting period of growth and a fantastic opportunity has arisen to join the Health & Wellbeing team in the role of Crick-EAT Officer. This pivotal role will take the lead on the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation’s (YCF) healthy holiday’s programme, Crick-EAT, ensuring children across Yorkshire have access to school holiday physical activity provision and free meals.

The YCF have delivered Crick-EAT since 2018, however private funding has allowed for the expansion of the programme to include delivery Yorkshire wide. At a time when holiday hunger is so topical, with many children and families experiencing hunger and inactivity throughout school holidays, this is the perfect opportunity for someone who is passionate about health and wellbeing to join the team.

This role requires the successful candidate to be able to work collaboratively with a wide range of partners, both internally and externally to successfully deliver Crick-EAT at 15 hubs across the county.

You are the perfect applicant for this role if you are highly motivated, enthusiastic and have an interest in health and wellbeing, and community development. You will have a good understanding of current literature on the topic of healthy holidays, as well as an over arching understanding of the health and wellbeing issues that affect Yorkshire’s communities. You will be highly organised, confident and able to communicate well in both verbal and written communications.

The post is full-time, based at Emerald Headingley Cricket Ground, though travel will be expected. A full, current UK driving license and access to a vehicle will be required. The job may also include regular evening and weekend work as required.
