Inspired Cricket PCA proposal
Love cricket, want to make some cash AND gain valuable sales/marketing experience? Then read on!
Inspired Cricket are looking for some talented, passionate PCA members, to help improve the provision of grass roots training sessions and games, and make themselves a few quid at the same time.

Do I need sales experience?
No! You just need a bit of inner drive, a good knowledge of cricket training and the desire to help young cricketers enjoy themselves. You will need the ability to be organised enough to count how many sales you make, but we can help you with that. We will also give you valuable hands-on experience of sales and marketing, which could set you up for your future career outside of cricket.
What will I get out of this?
If we think that you have got the right credentials, you will not only get the opportunity to earn commission per sale, we will also give you some training in order to give you the best chance of maximising your success rate, and some tips on how social media and marketing might boost your sales.
Am I the right person?
