VACANCY: Cricket Ireland Board Director

Cricket Ireland  

Cricket Ireland is seeking a new Independent Non-Executive Director to join the Cricket Ireland Board for an initial three-year term.

Cricket Ireland is the governing body for the men's and women's game throughout Ireland, with ultimate responsibility for its national and international aspects. Its formal title is The Irish Cricket Union Company Limited by Guarantee. The future of Irish cricket is very bright given the growth of the sport driven by significant success on the international stage in the last decade leading to unprecedented visibility for Irish cricket at home and abroad.

Cricket Ireland's emergence as a sport of national significance is growing following the elevation of Cricket Ireland to ICC Full Membership and Test Status, along with entry into the sport's Future Tours Programme that now sees Ireland playing all three formats of the game at the highest level for the foreseeable future.

Cricket Ireland periodically reviews the skills and experience specifications desired to ensure its Board of Directors best fulfills its remit to oversee a successful commercial organisation, promoting exemplary corporate governance and transparency whilst continuing to develop as an effective and representative governing body fully equipped to lead, develop and govern the sport.

This newly defined independent director role has been introduced following a recent evaluation by the Board of its effectiveness with the specific objective of constructively challenging and supporting management to ensure the system delivers optimum performance by national squads on the world stage.
