Job advert- Cricket Ireland National Men's Head Coach
Wed, Mar 25, 2015 10:14 AM
Cricket Ireland is the governing body for the game at both performance and participation levels throughout All-Ireland, representing the interests of both the men?s and women?s game.
The future of Irish Cricket is incredibly bright following the performance of the men?s senior team in the past three ICC World Cup and four ICC World Twenty20 events, defeating full members on five occasions, and winning the Associate member qualifiers in all three formats in 2013.
This success has resulted in the rapid growth of the organisation and significant increase in turnover through partnerships with blue-chip multi-national companies, with Sports Councils on both sides of the Irish border and with the ICC. At the same time, our growth in playing strength has attracted some of the top teams in the world to play Ireland, with teams such as England, Australia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh all playing on these shores in the last few years.
In line with its strategic objectives, Ireland now has an opportunity to gain Test status by 2019 by winning the ICC Intercontinental Cup 2015-17 and then defeating the 10th placed Test nation in a Test Challenge series. Ireland is also now one of 12-teams on the ICC ODI rankings, and will have the opportunity to play full member ODI?s over the period 2015-19. Ireland is currently 11th in the ODI rankings and 9th in the T20I rankings, and the target is to reach 8th in both formats by 2018.
Following the departure of Phil Simmons, Cricket Ireland is seeking a full-time National Men?s Head Coach, initially on a two-year fixed term contract.
The position is headquartered in North Dublin, but the nature of the role demands a national brief across both sides of the border as well as significant time travelling overseas.
