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. Yet our vision stretches far beyond the local: we have global reach, with circa 900,000 social media followers from around the world and bold ambitions for success on the international field.

Our enviable facilities at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, compliment the outstanding commercial opportunities our sporting profile presents. We are a 365-day venue: alongside hosting 50 days of cricket each year, we deliver numerous non-cricket related events, conferences, concerts and weddings, to name a few, with the determination to make our ground the primary sporting and business destination in the south-west.

We’re entering an exciting time at SCCC – the Covid-19 pandemic has required us to review our strategy and develop future plans to take the Club to new heights on and off the field. We are in a strong position to grow and achieve our ambitious goals which have ‘cricket at the heart and business on the mind’.

The Job

Are you, as a minimum, ECB Level 2 qualified coach (or equivalent)? Are you passionate about developing young players’ individual and team performance alongside the development of your team’s skills? Can you facilitate and deliver high quality practices? Would you like to be part of an inclusive, committed and aspirational team?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then we would love to hear from you.

We have a rare and exciting opportunity for a casual coach to become part of an innovative and progressive Pathway at Somerset County Cricket Club. You will be committed to improving effective delivery of the Pathway programme with a forward-thinking, collaborative approach. This encompasses delivering the curriculum that is in place for the relevant Age Group ensuring that players are given the best opportunity to develop through appropriate opportunity, practices and questioning to invoke learning.

We are looking for someone with a willingness to develop themselves and impart their learning and knowledge on to others.  You will also work alongside the Head of Talent Pathway and Pathway Coaching Lead to ensure that the Pathway delivers high quality practices to players.

At Somerset we are proud of our highly aspirational and supportive teams. We are committed to continually progress and evolve ourselves to be the best we can. You will contribute to our success by collaboratively creating and enhancing our environment enabling our young players to fulfil their individual promise and strengthen the team’s performance.
