Our purpose is clear; to unite and inspire everyone to love and play cricket. Cricket is so much more than just a game; it brings people together and binds us all through our shared experiences.

This is your opportunity to join a purpose led organisation that truly makes a difference to Australians.


This Is an exciting time for us as we take Australian Cricket’s cyber security posture to the next level, an ambition you could play a lead role in achieving as the GRC Specialist within our cyber security team.

The cyber security threat evolves at a rapid pace, so we’re looking for drive, passion, and energy to ensure that Australian Cricket can keep the threat at bay.

This is a nationally focused role, and we welcome applications from candidates located anywhere within Australia. You will be able to work flexibly, with a mix of working remotely and from within your nearest Australian Cricket office.

– Collaborating across other teams within Australian Cricket to identify, implement and maintain business continuity plans, cyber security controls, and processes commensurate with evaluated risk.

– Supporting the response to cyber incidents, including investigative activities, and assisting with remedial action. This may include after-hours activities.


– High level experience in a technology, cyber security, governance, risk, or compliance related field.

– Relevant tertiary qualifications or industry certification in a technology, cyber security, governance, risk, or compliance related field.

– Clear thinker whilst managing disparate and diverse business requirements, including the ability to manage tensions and compromise. Able to offer pragmatic solutions that are suitable for Australian Cricket’s size, scale, and environment.

– Ability to adapt to rapidly changing situations/environments, able to balance multiple priorities and remain focused and clear.

– Demonstrated collaboration and creative thinking skills (working with colleagues across Australia) as well as excellent analytical, verbal, and written communication skills.

– Credibility and influencing skills.
