The Role

Hampshire Cricket Board is responsible for growing recreational cricket in Hampshire.  We aim to inspire girls and boys to play cricket through the delivery of school, club and community-based programmes. 

Working in partnership with VIVID Homes and Chance to Shine, we want to make cricket more accessible to disadvantaged communities in Portsmouth, helping to reduce the risk of young people becoming involved in criminal behaviour and being exploited.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic person to join our successful team, who has an infectious passion for sport to engage and inspire young people, parents, teachers and community leaders.  Experience of working in urban environments and working with young people, will be a distinct advantage.

The successful person will co-deliver coaching sessions in community environments across Portsmouth. They will also assist with workshops designed to develop life skills and educate young people on prevalent social issues in the city.

An ECB Foundation I, Level 2 or Core Coach cricket coaching qualification is desirable but not a requirement of the role. We are looking for a person with the ability to connect with young people and communities, so if you do not have a cricket coaching qualification all you need is a commitment to achieve it within a short period of time.
