Every season, the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) advertises internship positions for ACA members looking to develop their career.
The Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA), in partnership with Cricket Australia and state organisations nationally, is offering five, paid sport administration internships for ACA members looking to develop their careers. There are eight advertised opportunities, and from these five will be selected to proceed based on interest and mutual benefit. The internships have been made possible through funds contributed by current and past players and through partnerships with Cricket Australia and the State Associations.
The Program is a terrific example of how players are funding initiatives to benefit fellow members and strengthen the game.
In its seventh year, the 2021/22 program offers a wide variety of diverse opportunities, detailed below.
The ACA Internship Program was developed to assist players with their career outside of the game. The ACA Internship is available to all ACA members.
The ACA has engaged Infront Sports Consulting (via people2people) to manage the application process.
For further information, please call Ryan Higgins or Erin Devlin at Infront Sports Consulting on 1300 338 546.
