As their preparations for the biggest sporting spectacle in the Caribbean continues, the Caribbean Premier League organisers have announced that they will begin hiring staff in the six franchise countries.
They will recruit in Antigua, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia and Trinidad and are inviting applications from anyone interested in making the inaugural tournament a success.
CPL is looking for a cricket operations officer, event operations officer, logistics officer, media and accreditation officer, security officer, ticketing coordinator and volunteer coordinator in each of the six countries. These positions will report directly to the event directors and oversee a cadre of volunteers.
“We are offering three-month contracts for these positions at this time,” said Laurie-Ann Holding, CPL event director. “We are looking for hardworking, experienced people who love cricket and will be great ambassadors for the CPL and indeed the Caribbean.”
Holding says the job descriptions for each post can be found on the CPL website (www.cplt20.com/careers), and resumes should be sent to [email protected]
The deadline for receiving applications is Friday, 3 May. Interviews will take place this month and candidates must be available to work from 1 June. The inaugural CPL tournament takes place 30 July to 24 August.
