Our employees at Cricket are gifted an additional week of leave at the end of the season! As a CA employee, you will also have other benefits including:

– A flexible working environment, meaning we strike the balance of what you need and what works for the business (this isn’t limited to working remotely)

– Discounts from our partners such as ASICS and salary packaging options

– A multitude of leave types including paid parental leave and volunteer leave


Cricket is a sport for all Australians and our workplace reflects that. We recognise our differences are our strength and a diverse and inclusive workforce is fundamental to our success.
