Using the power of sport to get more people active and improve their day-to-day lives has long been an ambition of Warwickshire CCC and Edgbaston Stadium, but we need to do more by better supporting the communities that we serve across the West Midlands and Warwickshire.

To do this, the Club is recruiting it’s first Community Director.  Somebody who will bring the energy, innovation and challenge needed to totally re-think how sport should engage with local communities to drive positive, tangible social change and make cricket safe and welcome for all – whether that’s as a professional or recreational player, fan, volunteer or employee.  Somebody with a really pragmatic approach who isn’t scared to roll up their sleeves and get things done as well as bring the bigger picture to life.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, the Community Director will make Edgbaston stadium part of day-to-day community life, reaching out to the region’s diverse audiences to make tangible social impact and increase the number of people wanting to pick up a bat and ball by driving forward the activities of Warwickshire Cricket Board and Edgbaston Foundation. 

It’s a big job that could make an immeasurable difference to people across the road from the stadium as much as those further afield.

A passion for cricket and knowledge of delivering large-scale, sports-based community projects would be preferred but it’s not essential.  The successful candidate must have experience of delivering tangible community strategies, including funding applications and project delivery, as well as the delivery of projects under the jurisdiction of the Charities Commission. 

Outside of that, it’s all about ideas, connections and experiences so we’re actively looking for people from different walks of life to apply who can help us think differently.
