Wiltshire Cricket Limited is a high-performing County Cricket Board responsible for the growth and development of cricket activity in Wiltshire, including ECB Growth Initiatives, Charity-led Programmes, Women’s & Girls’ Cricket, Disability Cricket and County-Wide Competitions. The continual growth and development of cricket in Wiltshire is largely due to engaging more children, young people and adults through All Stars Cricket, Dynamos Cricket, Chance to Shine Programmes, Super 1s Cricket Hubs, Street Cricket Projects, and an expanding Women & Girls’ Club Network.

Through our Driving Cricket’s Strategy we have an ambitious county-wide plan that provides the platform for outstanding delivery in the areas listed above.

Primarily, the post holder’s time will be spent out of office, delivering coaching in school, club and hub environments.
