The International Cricket Council has launched its search for a Regional Development Manager for the East Asia-Pacific region.

The vacancy has arisen due to the recent appointment of Matthew Kennedy, who previously held the position, as ICC Global Development Manager.

ICC Chief Executive Malcolm Speed said that the role is an important part of the ICC’s Development Program.

‘The role is a terrific opportunity for the right person to join cricket’s governing body and help drive the development of the game in the East Asia-Pacific region,’ said Mr Speed.

‘Since the Development Program was launched in 1997 the number of ICC members has increased from 48 to 89 countries and it is essential that this momentum is sustained.’

Although global in its objectives and aims, the Development Program is delivered through five regional offices; namely Africa, Americas, Asia, East Asia-Pacific and Europe.

Key areas of the regional development work include coach and umpire education, provision of equipment, facilities, resources and promotional materials, elite player programs and tournaments on both a local and regional basis.

The successful candidate is likely to posses:

  • proven management, administration and budgetary experience;
  • outstanding communications and interpersonal skills at all levels;
  • proven strategic planning and implementation attributes;
  • the ability to work with stakeholders from differing backgrounds across cultural and national identities;
  • high level IT skills;
  • a thorough understanding of the game of cricket; and
  • the personal drive of a self-starter and the passion required to inspire others to perform.
  • This role involves extensive travel, reports to the ICC offices in London and is based in the Melbourne offices of Cricket Australia.

    All enquiries should be directed to Michael Catlow or Penny Heron in the Melbourne office of Sport Employment Australia quoting Ref No. 2188 before Friday 30 January 2004.
