Fundraising Manager - Engaging South Asian communities for the ECB

The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have created a comprehensive and ambitious plan to better engage with South Asian Communities. Whilst there are approximately 1million South Asian cricket fans across England and Wales, there are several barriers that prevent these communities from fully engaging with the game.

We aim to support a major fundraising initiative undertaken by the ECB to create more opportunities for South Asian communities, remove the barriers to involvement and participation, build stronger relationships and use cricket to make a positive difference to the South Asian communities.

The £3million campaign will:

  • Raise funds for 3 new cricketing centres in urban areas.
  • Increase cricketing provision for children in the most ethnically diverse primary schools.
  • Fund the creation of a network of scouts to identify young cricketing talent and invest in their development.
  • Establish a bursary fund to support young South Asian cricketers from the most economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

This is a new role, working for the ECB, and a great opportunity to open up access to a passionate cricketing community. The post will be hosted by the British Asian Trust in their office near Westminster.

Closing date: 9am, Monday 22 July 2019
