Who We Are
We Are Ajman Cricket Council! Ajman Cricket Council: one of the most successful first-class county cricket clubs of the past 10 years. Deeply rooted in our community since 1875, with a rich reputation for developing talent from across the region. Yet our vision stretches far beyond the local: we have global reach, with circa 900,000 social media followers from around the world and bold ambitions for success on the international field.
Our enviable facilities across UAE compliment the outstanding commercial opportunities our sporting profile presents. We are a 365-day venue: alongside hosting 50 days of cricket each year, we deliver numerous non-cricket related events, conferences, concerts and weddings, to name a few, with the determination to make our ground the primary sporting and business destination in the south-west.
We’re entering an exciting time at AJCC– the Covid-19 pandemic has required us to review our strategy and develop future plans to take the Club to new heights on and off the field. We are in a strong position to grow and achieve our ambitious goals which have ‘cricket at the heart and business on the mind’.
Are you keen to develop your grounds management skills and experience in a professional, first-class sporting environment? Would you like to be part of a highly successful, inclusive, committed and aspirational team?
If the answer to these questions is yes, we would love to hear from you.
We are searching for a seasonal Assistant Grounds Person for the 2022 season (April to September).

Our main requirements from you are a keen desire to learn about and contribute to the preparation and maintenance of first-class cricket pitches, commitment and the ability to work as a team member in a demanding environment where excellent results are required. You will likely have a passion for cricket pitches and sports turf maintenance, good attention to detail, be well organised and self-motivated.
