ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 – Inhouse Legal Support

(Full time, fixed term until May 2022)


The ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup is the pinnacle of women’s cricket, and the next installment is to be hosted right here, in New Zealand, in March 2022. More than a billion people around the world viewed the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup last year and engagement is set to continue in 2022, with every match televised live for the first time. The local organising committee has been established to deliver the tournament, in partnership with the ICC and New Zealand Cricket, and we’re a passionate team who are growing fast.


We’re looking for an intermediate level inhouse legal support to lead our legal processes and procedures including negotiation, where necessary, and execution of contracts. You will be working closely with internal contact owners and external stakeholders and suppliers, and provide qualified legal advice and support to ensure our legal obligations are understood and adhered to in a pragmatic and practical approach.


Ideally, you’ll have a host of relevant experience, including:

  • Drafting, reviewing and completing high quality legal agreements
  • Providing proactive and practical inhouse legal advice and support
  • Ensuring compliance with all legislation and supporting the team on legal matters


You’ll also possess the following attributes:

  • Self-motivated, adaptable and a natural problem-solver
  • Highly organised and can plan and prioritise your time
  • Calm and pragmatic under the pressure of a big event


We are a high-performance organisation. To join us, you’ll share our passion, focus and determination to deliver a world class tournament. This is a rare chance to be part of the team behind a major international event. The ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 is the largest women’s sporting event ever held in New Zealand, placing it at the forefront of the growth of women’s sport, both in New Zealand and globally.
