WILL EVERYONE WHO BOUGHT A TICKET LAST YEAR BE ABLE TO GET ONE THIS YEAR?

For anyone who bought a ticket to the 2020 competition there will be an exclusive ticket window from 15 - 28 March.

Within this window 2020 ticket purchasers will be able to buy the same number of tickets for 2021. This will be on a first come first serve basis. Therefore, anyone who purchased more than six tickets last year, will only be able to buy a maximum of six tickets for 2021. This is to give as many different people as possible the chance to enjoy The Hundred.

All previous ticket buyers will receive an email from us ahead of the Exclusive Ticket Window for 2020 Buyers opening on the 15th – 28th March, providing further details on how they can buy tickets for the 2021 competition.

 

The Hundred Rising

 

Is The Hundred Rising open to anyone to apply?

Yes, it’s open to anyone aged 18 and over.

 

Is it a competition?

No, it is not a competition. The Hundred Rising will provide 100 CV-enhancing opportunities to help up and coming talent move forward in their careers after the challenges of the past year. There are selection criteria for each role, some of which will include providing a degree of demonstrable knowledge and skills within the field they’re applying to work in.  

 

What do you mean by up-and-coming talent?

The Hundred Rising is open to anyone aged 18 and over but many of the roles require limited work experience so are especially suited for those looking for their break into the sport and entertainment industry.

 

Please can you provide more detail on the reporter, host and content creator roles?

You can read about these paid roles at thehunded.com/rising.

How to apply:     

  • Log in or create an account for The Hundred
  • Once you’re logged in, return to The Hundred Rising homepage and your chosen opportunity to access the application process

 

If you have any specific questions, please email the following addresses:

 

Explain why you think these roles and training opportunities are ‘CV-enhancing’?

We will be providing genuine roles and opportunities in professional working environments that people are able to include on their CVs and in job interviews, supporting their career progression. The 32 roles live now – Hosts, Content Creators and Reporters – are all paid seasonal roles to work on The Hundred this summer.

 

Why aren’t you releasing all 100 opportunities at the same time?

Different roles need to be filled at different times, considering training needs etc.  Therefore, it makes more sense to release different opportunities at different times.

 

When will the next roles be released?

Roles will be released in the lead up to the competition. The next drop of roles is likely to be mid-April. Keep an eye on thehundred.com/rising for more opportunities. 

 

How will you be safeguarding the applicants?

All applicants must be over 18 years old.  We have team members dedicated to facilitating successful applicants’ experiences with The Hundred, who will be on hand to help with all their questions. 

Everyone’s specific needs will be addressed on an individual basis to ensure they are able to fulfil the job role or opportunity they have been given.

 

Will successful applicants be contracted by the ECB?

Some roles will be contracted by the ECB directly and others will be contracted by our partners who are integral to the delivery of The Hundred. For example, the Rising Reporters will be contracted by the ECB, the Rising Content Creators will be contracted by our digital agency, LiveWire Sport, and the Rising Hosts will be contracted by our event production agency, Progress Productions. We all work and act as one team to deliver The Hundred.

 

What kind of training will successful applicants receive?

Training is dependent on the role they have successfully applied for.  For example, hosts will be provided with mentoring by professional presenters, will attend a training workshop and will be guided through rehearsals.  Reporters will also receive  training and support . Content Creators will be guided by LiveWire Sport’s expert team of Digital specialists.

 

Who will be providing the training / mentoring?

Progress, the ECB’s Event Production agency will be providing professional training for the Rising Hosts. This will include access to industry experts such as BBC Sport Presenter Isa Guha and TV and Radio presenter Vick Hope. The successful applicants will work alongside and learn from experts like these before going on to become part of The Hundred team.

The training for the Rising Content Creators will be provided by LiveWire Sport’s team of digital and content experts.

The training for the Rising Reporters will be provided by the ECB and our relevant partners.

In the run up to the competition, we will confirm further mentors and training opportunities for successful Rising applicants to get involved in.

 

Why is it important for you to attract people from a variety of backgrounds, who may not think cricket is a game for them? 

The Hundred will throw cricket's doors open to new audiences. In line with this, The Hundred Rising has been designed to ensure there is diversity in applicants and successful candidates.

 

Does this mean traditional cricket fans won’t get a chance to be involved?

Absolutely not. The Hundred Rising is open to everyone.  It is open to any person who has an interest in getting involved in this summer’s definitive sporting and entertainment event. 

 

Will this be an annual programme?

These are the plans for year one but we will be looking at how we can build this longer term.

 

How are candidates being recruited?

The Rising Hosts, Rising Reporters and Rising Content Creators each have their own selection process due to the different partners involved and the unique requirements of each role. However, all roles are being recruited via application processes that eliminate biases, in compliance with the ECB’s recruitment practices. Rather than shortlisting candidates through CVs, we are asking candidates to show us their skills, knowledge, experience, and passion. The candidates whose skills best match the selection criteria will be chosen for the job. This is the case across all live roles.

 

How are you ensuring you attract and recruit a diverse range of applicants?

All roles are being recruited via application processes that eliminate biases in compliance with the ECB’s recruitment practices. These types of recruitment practices have been proven to support diversity and inclusion, allowing judgements to be based on merit rather than background. We will also be promoting The Hundred Rising among a diverse range of media outlets, organisations and partners in order to attract applicants from a range of backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations and ethnicities.

 

How long will each role last for during the competition?

All roles will last for the duration of the competition, from 21 July - 21 August, with training and rehearsals taking place in advance.

 

Will there be other opportunities after the competition ends?

The Hundred Rising opportunities are seasonal roles for the duration of the competition (21 Jul-21 Aug 2021). Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee work / opportunities beyond that. But we very much hope that the CV-enhancing experiences people have and contacts they are able to make during the programme will stand them in good stead for their next move.   

 

What if I don’t live near a Hundred venue?

The Hundred Rising is open to anyone aged 18 and over however all the roles that are currently live – Rising Hosts, Rising Content Creators and Rising Reporters – would require successful applicants to travel to one of The Hundred host venues for work. It is down to individuals to decide whether they would be able and willing to travel regularly to their chosen venue for work should they be successful. This would be a requirement of the role.
