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’.

With nearly 1 million followers across all social media platforms and a website boasting 10 million hits in the last 2 years, this is a fantastic opportunity to join Somerset’s award-winning communications team and work in the thrilling environment of professional cricket. 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. Working closely with the Digital Marketing Manager, this unique opportunity will help shape an ever-evolving digital strategy which will provide value to Somerset supporters, partners, staff and other stakeholders.
