VACANCY: Community Development Officer
Yorkshire Cricket – Community Development Officer, Leeds & Bradford
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Yorkshire Cricket as Community Development Officer for Leeds & Bradford.
Yorkshire Cricket has secured funding from the ECB to better understand how communities in Leeds and Bradford, that have a heritage and history connected to the South Asian countries of Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka wish to watch, play, coach and officiate in cricket in Yorkshire. This post will be to help develop that understanding across Yorkshire Cricket and help promote best practice from a local to regional level.
Applicants need a sound knowledge and understanding of South Asian communities & cultures, recreational cricket; a commitment to increase adult player retention and participation at all levels; proven managerial and administrative competencies; together with excellent communication skills.
The successful applicant will be employed by The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation but will work under the Yorkshire Cricket banner which also includes Yorkshire County Cricket Club and The Yorkshire Cricket Board.
Knowledge and experience of cricket would be advantage but the role is not a coaching one.
The post is full-time, based two days a week in Leeds, two days a week in Bradford and one day at Headingley Cricket Ground. A full current UK driving license is required.
For an informal discussion about the post or for the job description please contact Will Saville on: 0113 2033620 email@example.com .
To apply please send your C.V and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or F.A.O Will Saville, Headingley Cricket Ground, Leeds, LS6 3BU
The closing date for applications is Friday 11th July 2014, with interviews scheduled for week commencing 21st July. We are looking to make an appointment for the new post holder to join the organisation in August or early September.
