Without our fantastic army of volunteers, cricket simply wouldn’t exist. Here you can find guidance on how to recruit more volunteers for your club or team.
Identify volunteering roles in cricket
If you are a club looking to recruit volunteers it is always good practice to include a role description when advertising any opportunity. View volunteering roles descriptions in cricket.
Organisations who can help recruit cricket volunteers
There are many organisations dedicated to supporting the voluntary community, which means that cricket clubs can get lots of additional help.
Volunteer centres can be an excellent source of help for your club when you are looking to find new volunteers. They can extend the range of people who volunteer in sport and may well be able to identify someone with specific skills who would not necessarily have found their way into sport or your club.
Use do-it.org.uk to advertise your club vacancies, or as an individual to search for an opportunity.
Local organisations, charities, and companies
Many cities, towns and regions often have local organisations and charities which can help recruit and place volunteers for your club.
vInspired is an independent charity aiming to inspire a new generation of volunteers (aged 11 to 25) in England, and are experts at working with young people who want to make a difference in their local community. They have 275,000 registered young volunteers who have a wide range of skills and knowledge which could make a real difference to your club.
Universities and colleges
There are currently over one million young people aged between 16-25 unemployed within the United Kingdom and as a consequence of this the job market for this age group is extremely competitive and it is vital for young people to get work experience and enhance their CV before graduating.
So whether it is an IT student helping to set up your website, a marketing student helping to promote events to the club and community, or sports students helping with coaching and organising cricket festivals at your club - all clubs could benefit from students' knowledge and skills as well as providing young people with valuable work experience.
