We have 5,500 Members and crowds of 7,500 supporters for some matches.

In 2019, the Coopers Associates County Ground will host three ICC Men’s World Cup matches following the highly successful International match held in 2017. The Ground is also utilised for many other events such as concerts and open-air cinema evenings.

The Role

Somerset County Cricket Club are looking for a pro-active Sales Executive to join our small and close knit Commercial Team. You will be working closely with our Head of Commercial Sales and our Commercial Partnerships Manager to effectively deliver the Sales Strategy in line with the Club’s targets and KPI’s.
