ECB advertising ONLINE for new head coaches with England in race against time


THE ECB have resorted to advertising online for England head coaches.

Separate ads for the Test and limited-over roles were posted on job hiring platform Applied on Saturday.

Perks incredibly include some working from home, flexible hours, extra holiday, a wellness programme, paid volunteer days and mentoring.

Candidates must apply by 6pm on May 6 with first interviews taking place on May 9 and 10.

ECB managing director Rob Key is in a hurry to fill the posts.

The new supremo is set to travel to the North East to talk to Ben Stokes over the vacant captain’s role.

Joe Root resigned as Test skipper earlier this month following a series defeat in West Indies and a run of just one win in 17 games.

Key is now racing to appoint a coach and captain by the summer’s First Test against New Zealand at Lord’s on June 2.

The squad must be picked by May 26. 

But the new head coach is unlikely to be given sole responsibility for selecting players.


And there was no mention of it in the online job spec.

That suggests a return to a selection panel headed by a national selector is on the cards.

South Africans Graham Ford and Gary Kirsten, and Aussie Simon Katich are contenders for the Test role.
