Non-Executive Director (Cricket) - Vacancy


Cricket Wales is today starting its search for a new Non-Executive Director (Cricket / Recreational Game).

Board member Gareth Lanagan sadly recently had to step down early from the end of his first term, for personal reasons, so a vacancy for a Non-Executive Director (Cricket) has now arisen. 

We welcome applications from any person who is eligible to undertake the role of a Company Director – ie over 16 years of age and not currently disqualified from being a Director.  To apply to be a Non-Executive Director (Cricket/Recreational Game), you must also be a member of a Cricket Wales affiliated organisation, and be proposed and seconded by a Cricket Wales affiliated club, league, region or association. These are essential criteria.

We are committed to finding the right balance of skills, knowledge, experience, independence and diversity on the Board which reflects and meet the needs of cricket, clubs and the communities we serve.  Based on the current Board skills matrix, we are looking for candidates who can demonstrate experience in some or all of the following areas:

Successful track record in developing and/or leading the game at a local/regional level*

Experience of championing equity, diversity and inclusion

Change management

Strategic planning

Relationship management

Executive performance review.

*We would particularly welcome applicants with experience of developing and/or leading cricket in rural or remote areas.

A candidate’s ability to speak Welsh is also highly desirable, but not essential;  Support for successful applicants who want to improve their Welsh language skills will be offered.

Cricket Wales encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates irrespective of their ethnicity, gender, religion, belief or sexual orientation.  While we will always appoint on merit, we would particularly encourage applications from under- represented groups and communities in cricket – especially those who identify as female, LGBTQ+, people from ethnically diverse communities, or who identify as having a disability.

We are also committed to Safer Recruitment policies and practices. You can read more about this here.
