The Hundred is throwing its doors wide open. We’ve launched The Hundred Rising, a brand-new programme of 100 exciting opportunities offering emerging professionals a platform to showcase their talent.
Positions offered by The Hundred Rising will see individuals gain valuable experience working on this summer’s must-see sporting and entertainment event. The roles will take you straight to the heart of the action and make the competition an entertaining experience for families to watch in-ground or from home.
We know that people are being significantly impacted by a lack of opportunity to work and develop their skills at the moment. The Hundred Rising is a commitment to provide a range of CV-enhancing roles for up-and-coming talent. The very first opportunities now open are:
- Rising Hosts to co-host on the big screen in stadia or digitally at The Hundred games
- Rising Reporters who will be responsible for publishing match reports and game write ups from each of The Hundred games
- Rising Content Creators who will be ‘embedded’ within each team to create short-form stories for The Hundred’s social channels
Further roles will be announced in the lead up to the competition. Positions will be on offer across the eight city-based teams, located across seven host cities: Birmingham, Leeds, London, Nottingham, Manchester, Southampton and Cardiff.
BBC SPORT PRESENTER ISA GUHA COMMENTED:
“After what has been a difficult year for so many, it is great to see the creation of so many exciting career opportunities with the launch of The Hundred Rising. I’m looking forward to seeing what stars it will discover and being on hand to offer some advice and tips.”
PRESENTER VICK HOPE, WHO WILL HELP MENTOR RISING HOSTS, SAID:
“Getting into a new industry isn’t easy, let alone in the midst of a global pandemic and this is why I’m so passionate about The Hundred Rising. It is a genuine commitment to providing real-world opportunities to help people move forward in their careers after the challenges of the past year.”
SANJAY PATEL, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF THE HUNDRED, ADDED:
“The Hundred is all about opening up the sport to broader audiences and giving people an opportunity and platform to showcase their talent both on and off the pitch. After the year that we’ve all had, it’s clear that people need an opportunity now more than ever and we’re committed to providing that through The Hundred Rising.”
