Yorkshire is recruiting new staff to help develop an “inclusive and welcoming culture that learns from the past”

Yorkshire has invited applications for a head coach and six non-executive director roles to help the county get through “the toughest time” in its history.

The club has been widely criticized for handling Azeem Rafiq’s allegations of racism and harassment during his two stints at Headingley as a player.

It led to a county staff review with President Roger Hutton and CEO Mark Arthur stepping down last month before 16 technical and medical team members were fired in early December, including the coach. first team Andrew Gale and Cricket Director Martyn Moxon. Former White Rose bowler Darren Gough has taken on the latter role, initially on an interim basis for the 2022 season.

An announcement on Friday confirmed that Yorkshire was making “a call for nominations for both its head coach and a number of non-executive director positions on his board.”

New Yorkshire President Lord Patel said, “There is a lot of work to be done to ensure that Yorkshire County Cricket Club is a club for everyone.

“We are committed to promoting excellence throughout the team and we need people in the club who believe in the process we are undertaking and want to be part of it.

“The roles we are advertising today will play a crucial role in developing an inclusive and welcoming culture that learns from the past and embraces progress.

“We want to attract the best candidates from a wide range of backgrounds to join us and look forward to meeting potential candidates in the coming weeks.”
