Cricket’s ambition is to become the most inclusive sport in England and Wales. As the national governing body, we know that we must do more and this role will be an essential part of achieving that ambition. As part of the ECB’s EDI (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) team reporting into the Senior EDI Manager, you’ll be working alongside over 60 cricket organisations (‘the game’) to support delivery of our EDI Action Plan. 


The England and Wales Cricket Board is the national governing body for all cricket in England and Wales, supporting the game at every level – from grassroots to professional.

We believe cricket is a force for good that can have an enduring impact on everyone’s lives and we have an ambitious strategy to inspire a generation to say “cricket is a game for me”. It provides great entertainment. It teaches important skills, both physical and social. It can help inclusion and social cohesion, bringing communities together.

The ECB welcomes applications from all backgrounds to ensure we deliver our Inspiring Generations strategy and fulfil our purpose to connect communities and improve lives through cricket.
