Career Opportunities

Participation Activator

An opportunity to play while working! Are you outgoing, fun and bubbly?

Do you enjoy running around and getting young people active in play? are you a big kid when it comes to jumping around in inflatable equipment and throwing around water balloons?

If so, we want to hear from you!

Canterbury Cricket are on the look out for our next two enthusiastic Participation Activators, to deliver programmes, create new ones and build relationship with children and youth to engage them in the variety of play opportunities.

This summer we have the continuation of the successfully piloted Yeah! Girls programme and new New Zealand Cricket initiatives around engaging young women and girls in sport. We also have an inflatable catching mat and net to use at local events, shopping malls, the beach and in clubs around the Canterbury region to promote fun play opportunities. There are also a growing number of primary schools that want us to deliver fun active sessions with their pupils in school time. If you think you have the passion to deliver and the initiative to try new things, learn from mistakes and be part of a team that are determined to grow the number of youth and children actively playing sport then please send your CV and cover letter to Simon Hill General Manager – Community Cricket at

This role will report to the Participation Manager – Women and Girls and be based, only when you are not out having fun, in the Canterbury Cricket office. It is a full-time role and will involve weekend and evening work at times. We are a flexible organisation and work with our staff to ensure quality time off with family and friends, to ensure the batteries are charged up for the next opportunity.

Applications close Thursday 26th September at 4pm. Interviews will be held on Friday 27th September.
