About The Desert Vipers

The Desert Vipers are a professional cricket team based in Dubai, playing in the DP World ILT20. Owned by Avram Glazer (Manchester Utd / Tampa Bay Buccaneers), the Desert Vipers have fast become Dubai’s favourite cricket team, featuring world-class players and a brand committed to placing sustainability front and centre of its operations.

Our extensive sponsorship rights and sustainability programme deliver compelling sponsorship and partner opportunities, enabling brands in the UAE and  around the world to connect with their audiences.

What we are looking for

We are looking for an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and energetic content manager to drive our social media and digital engagement to the next level, bringing fresh ideas and a willingness to roll their sleeves up. As a new brand, we have more flexibility to do things differently and want to reflect that in the content we produce, whether written, audio or video.

The role:

As the Content Manager, you will be responsible for how all our content goes out, in order to maximise our reach, engagement and to promote both our brand and philosophies. This is as important (if not more) out of season as it is when our team is on the pitch; our approach to sustainability, for example, is at the core of how we operate and that should be reflected in the content we produce.

You’ll work closely with our small team, acting as the bridge between our digital agency, comms/PR and players, creating, producing and owning the content.

It would be very beneficial for you to have experience in cricket / sport, but not essential. You should have ~2 years’ experience in a similar role, though we will consider those with less experience who are willing to get stuck in. We are initially looking for someone based in Dubai.


  • Plan in advance, where possible, all social and digital content as part of a clear content strategy.
  • Commission or produce video/audio/written content as required, taking ownership of all published material.
  • Embed sustainability as part of our content strategy
  • Exploit our talent, giving particular attention to our local UAE players.
  • Manage our digital agency’s content production as required


  • Pro-active attitude and an eagerness to learn
  • Excellent communication skills. Excellent attention to detail with immaculate written English.
  • Ability to travel internationally
  • Willingness to work long hours / weekends when appropriate – particularly in the build up to and during DP World ILT20 season.
