St John’s, Antigua – The West Indies Cricket Board has launched an Event Management Internship Programme. The internship programme is aimed at building the event management capacity in the Caribbean by facilitating active partnership between the Event Management Unit of the WICB and West Indies cricket host venues (the various countries where international and regional cricket are hosted).
The internship programme is administered through a partnership with the various host cricket boards around the region and is funded, in its entirety by the WICB. The programme will run for 4 to 6 months and the first batch of interns will commence participation next month.
“This internship programme is an important opportunity for us to engage young people, active and former cricketers to build capacity around the region for the purposes of efficiently executing WICB events,” WICB Events Manager Cindy McLean said.
“While the programme will benefit WICB in assisting us in delivering higher quality experiences for cricket fans it will also expand the knowledge of interns in all the various areas of event management,” McLean added.
The interns will experience all functions of event management including event planning, analysis, budgeting, forecasting and reporting.
Persons interested in applying to the programme should do so through their respective national cricket board.
