Director of Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation

After 33 inspirational years, John Barclay will be stepping down in Spring 2020 as Director of Cricket and Coaching at the Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation (ACCF). In addition, Annie Atkinson will be retiring from her role as Executive Assistant at the same time.

ACCF’s mission is to bring disadvantaged children from inner city areas to the West Sussex countryside and beautiful Arundel Castle cricket ground. Many of the youngsters have special needs: some are blind or deaf; others have educational, physical and emotional problems. All lack opportunity. The aim is to give them new skills, greater confidence and some fun. Over the years, many thousands have benefitted from ACCF’s work including those living closer to Arundel itself.

The Trustees are seeking an ambitious Director to provide dynamic leadership and direction as we build upon the significant achievements to date.

The successful applicant will be a person with:

• a passion for cricket and sport in general
• a belief in the ability of sport to change lives for the better
• an understanding of the educational needs of those facing challenging lives
• a grasp of economic common sense
• a social and political awareness and sensitivity

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a sense of vocation with the ability to inspire, collaborate, network and fundraise. He/she will be an articulate and compelling communicator both in public and private. There is flexibility around location but presence at Arundel during the summer months is essential.

If you are interested and would like to find out more, please email James Rufey, ACCF’s Executive Secretary, for the full job profile:

Applications should be made to James attaching your CV and a covering letter explaining why you are applying for this role and the qualities that you would bring to it. The location is flexible with the focus during the summer months being on activities based primarily at Arundel.

Applications will close on Friday 17th May 2019.
