Our next Chief Executive will be a visible leader capable of managing and further motivating a small and geographically dispersed team to continue to deliver outstanding performance in growing participation in cricket. You will understand the power of sport to positively change lives and will be capable of actively promoting the work we do so as to enhance the profile of Cricket Wales.

You will be effective at engaging with a diverse range of stakeholders both at the highest levels of Government and our funding partners, and with all our participants and volunteers from across our sport.  Central to success in the role will be an ability to be creative in revenue generation and delivering future income growth.  But, above all, you will provide leadership and commitment, to promote and deliver the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion in everything we do and as a cornerstone of our organisation. 

This is a truly rare opportunity to join an organisation with a rich and proud history and an equally exciting future.  You will be working with a motivated and talented team led by a genuinely committed and dynamic Board of Directors to help us deliver our strategy that will lead our organisation into its next period of success both on and off the field.

Cricket Wales' Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Cricket Wales is committed to providing equitable opportunities. While we will always appoint on merit, we would particularly encourage applications from under- represented groups and communities in cricket – especially female or ethnically diverse people, or those who identify as having a disability.  Cricket Wales and McBride Sport have agreed to undertake a 'blind' shortlisting process for this role to minmise the potential for unconsious bias.

Our Commitment to Safer Recruitment

Cricket Wales is committed to safeguarding and protecting the children and young people that we work with. As such, all posts are subject to a safe recruitment process, including where applicable the disclosure of criminal records and vetting checks. The role of CEO meets the criteria of Regulated Activity and therefore any offer of employment will be conditional pending completion of a satisfactory Enhanced DBS certificate.
