Love cricket? Want to work in the sporting industry? Read on!
Cricket NSW will be hosting the Sixers Smash at UON, an 8-a-side T20 tournament, one of several sessions being held at various University locations across NSW. The Sixers Smash will give international and domestic students the opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of T20 Cricket. The winning team will become Sydney Sixers members and progress through to a final round!
As part of the Sixers Smash initiative, Cricket NSW is also offering the chance for 4‐5 students from each event the opportunity to be part of a unique internship program with Cricket NSW/Sydney Sixers, with scope for possible post study employment. The internship is a non‐paying position and is open to international students.
This internship opportunity will take place between Nov 2017 and June/July 2018. The hours of commitment are flexible to suit study periods. Game development work will be in and around Newcastle but will also include an induction and match events in Sydney. The work experience will involve taking part in the running of programs at schools and local community organisations with Cricket NSW mentors, and time in the Cricket NSW administration office learning about the running of the organisation. Students in the program will also be guided in background knowledge and interview skills for any future roles available for full time employment with Cricket NSW.
Students will be chosen from those who attend the Sixers Smash event on the day; selection will be based on enthusiasm and willingness to participate.
Enjoy a great game of cricket AND score a internship? Best. Day. Ever.
