We have a hugely exciting opportunity for the right person to join The Hundred as a Head of Ticketing. The purpose of this role is to lead the development and delivery of The Hundred’s ticketing plan to deliver an outstanding cricket competition.

The Hundred is a world class cricket tournament for both the men’s and women’s game designed to broaden the appeal of the sport.

This is the highest profile new sports event to launch in the UK for many years and receives extensive media coverage, with all games live on Sky and BBC.


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 recreational 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.
