What is it like to work for England and Wales Cricket Board

My Manager

The Board have policies and procedures that are available on the internal corporate intranet, which the People Team are currently in the process of revising. In addition, the People Team make themselves available to Managers either face to face, by phone or email as appropriate to answer any queries and to understand their challenges and issues. This helps them provide best fit as well as best practice solutions, plus it allows them to give advice and guidance on how best to approach emotive people matters. Specifically, the organisation has supported people new to people management through training and one to one’s, so they can get the support they need and understand their new role. People Managers who are going through significant structural changes within their teams/departments are also offered this so they understand their role and how they can help their team transition.
Personal Growth

For an individual who has moved up internally within the business one to one mentoring is organised to support them with the challenges they are faced with. These challenges are related to colleagues and stakeholder’s perception of them being more ‘junior’ within the business. Internal work experience is also made available throughout the organisation, enabling colleagues to shadow individuals in other departments and businesses, as well as encouraging personal and professional growth.
My Company
My Company
The England and Wales Cricket Board’s mission, vision and values are communicated through Cricket Unleashed. Initially this was launched to key stakeholders in cricket at the AGM. It was launched to all employees at the employee’s event in 2015. This was special because it brought all employees and teams under one roof for the first time. It marked a change in the way the organisation wanted to do things going forward – collaboratively and as a team. It included an address from the CEO Tom Harrison and the Director of Cricket Andrew Strauss. The values were also communicated at the annual Christmas Event. It was launched by two of ECB’s values ambassadors, who had helped the People team throughout the process and provided excellent assistance and advice throughout. Furthermore the Board designed some visually inspiring logos to bring the statements to life. They now use these across their paperwork and within their processes to reinforce the messages.
