The Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) is advertising eight ten-week internship positions for ACA members looking to develop their career. Please note that the ACA will only be progressing with five positions, which will be based on the quality of the role and the quality of applications. This means that not all listed positions are guaranteed to come to fruition.
The internships are paid sport administration internships available to ACA members strictly. This program has been made possible through funds donated by the current players, and through partnerships with state cricket organisations nationally. The Program is a terrific example of how current players are funding initiatives to benefit fellow members and strengthen the game. In its sixth year, the 2020 program again offers a wide variety of opportunities, detailed below.
The ACA Internship Program was developed as an opportunity for ACA members to gain work experience and is available to all ACA members. ACA has engaged long-term careers partner Infront Sports Consulting (via people2people) to manage the application process. For the 2020 Program, SACA is offering the following opportunity:
