Managing Director

Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket Foundation is the official charity of Leicestershire County Cricket Club. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting the game of cricket at all levels and particularly among young people, through partnership and involvement of professional and recreational cricketing bodies, community clubs and other appropriate agencies within Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Despite enjoying a strong track record of community engagement across Leicestershire and Rutland to date,  including the continued delivery of free cricket programmes in primary schools and increased support for the women and girls’ game in our community-based clubs, there is more to be done. The establishment of the Foundation as its own entity helps us to supercharge our reach and achieve our ambitions of increasing accessibility and participation in cricket across the Counties we serve.

To help us achieve our ambitions, we are seeking to appoint a Managing Director to join and oversee our Executive team, and to lead the delivery and execution of our first strategy.
