DIRECTOR OF CRICKET AT ACTON CC
The major focus of this position is to produce continued sustained success across all levels of club cricket, from juniors to senior teams through the development of a strong and sustainable environment, providing a feeder system for the juniors through to senior cricket, and to create a setup for cricketers of all abilities to love and improve their game.
This is a new role at ACC, with substantial opportunities for the right candidate to shape it and make it their own. ACC has always been (and will continue to be) a volunteer-run community club, but we recognise the need for a more formal role to pull together the many pieces of a fast-growing organisation. The Director of Cricket will have the support of the Club Committee, and in particular, benefit from input from the Chairman, the Club/1st XI Captain, and the 2nd XI Captain in carrying out their role.
The ideal candidate will come with a passion for coaching and the energy to create a positive environment for improvement. It should be someone that sets high cricket standards.
The role will be suitable for someone who is looking to create a career out of coaching for the foreseeable future. The person should be organised, energetic, approachable, have strong communication skills and be good at working in a team environment.
Finally, it is vital that the person is someone that buys into the ACC ethos as a whole – from building relationships to attending socials to supporting club members all the way from the 1st XI to the U9s.
