Every season, the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) advertises internship positions for ACA members looking to develop their career.
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. Infront Sports Consulting (via people2people) will manage the application process.
For further information, please call Ryan Higgins or Erin Devlin at Infront Sports Consulting on 1300 338 546 or ACA Player Transition Manager Carla Dziwoki on 0422 387 755.
All applications will require your current Curriculum Vitae and a cover letter detailing:
Placements can be completed full or part time, in-season or during the off-season, with flexibility around training, playing and other commitments.
The ACA were great for me an they’ve changed my life in regards to giving me another crack after cricket.Simon Branston Former WA Bowler
Former Western Australian bowler Simon Branston utilised the ACA’s internship program which helped him pursue his career and passion beyond cricket.
After coming off contract – and dabbling in a bit of curating – Branston landed an internship with the WACA as a curator. After developing his trade in the west, an opportunity arose at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium – the home of the Renegades. Branston’s application was successful and before too long he relocated to Melbourne for his dream job.
“The ACA were great for me an they’ve changed my life in regards to giving me another crack after cricket,” Branston said.
“When I lost my contract, it hits you pretty hard. I was a bit of a lost soul and I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with my life and then the internship with the ACA came up.
“When you stop doing what you’ve done every day, and that’s the reason why you get out of bed it is hard. You’ve really got to find something that you love doing and that was what was lucky with me, is that I found something that I loved.”
