  • Cricket Development Officer (Community Development) – this role is focused on engagement with a range of under-represented populations, community groups, schools and clubs to increase participation in cricket for all ages and abilities.  The role is also focused on enabling capacity building opportunities for coaches, umpires, leaders and volunteers.

The successful post holders will play a key part in driving forward the development of participation and performance in cricket within the NCU, Ulster University and across the NCU region. They will be required to deliver key areas of the NCU’s Strategic Plan, Cricket Ireland’s Strategic Plan and Ulster University’s Sports Development Strategy and will be responsible to the NCU General Manager and an Ulster University representative.
