The successful candidate will be a Level 2 cricket coach (minimum) with the motivation and passion to inspire children, teachers and clubs within Somerset. The role will involve a varied work programme with the opportunity to be involved in a number of exciting areas of the game.

In Somerset we are incredibly proud of the opportunities we offer schools and the relationships we have with them. The successful applicant will play an important role in continuing to build and develop these opportunities and to create more opportunities for schools to access.
