National Women’s Head Coach
The Jersey Cricket women's head coach role will develop Jersey's best female cricketers and attract more players to the sport to build a sustainable talent pipeline for the future. Women’s and girls’ cricket is at a key point in its evolution in Jersey and this role will lead and continue the good progress made in the delivery of our exciting strategy.
The role holder will have responsibility for influencing the performance and development of a young high potential national team. Currently ranked 28th and playing in ICC Women’s Europe Division II, we are ambitious to progress to Division I in 2025 and to qualify for the ICC Women's T20 u19s World Cup in 2026. On the critical path to achieving these goals, is the need to quickly increase the number of women and girls playing cricket in Jersey so the role combines both coaching delivery,
and development work. It will involve engaging with participants of all ages, and include club, community, and school-based cricketing opportunities, both coaching and running activities.
The head coach will possess the characteristics, lived experience and motivation to connect with players at various stages in their development, enabling the team to perform on the field, to develop and to establish its place as a successful and respected team – as well as inspiring and mobilising future generations of cricketers.
