Who We Are

We Are Somerset! Somerset County Cricket Club: one of the most successful first-class county cricket clubs of the past 10 years. Deeply rooted in our community since 1875, with a rich reputation for developing talent from across the region.

Our enviable facilities at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, compliment the outstanding commercial opportunities our sporting profile presents.

In particular, the Club is looking to expand and grow digital content offerings across multiple channels to drive engagement, leads, sales and brand awareness across Somerset County Cricket Club and the Cooper Associates County Ground.

This role will enable you to work with international sporting stars and apply knowledge of digital content creation to that environment.
