The Hundred have announced that they will be looking to create 100 opportunities for young people to work and volunteer at the inaugural competition this summer.
The initiative, called 'The Hundred Rising', will work to give young people the chance to gain valuable experience by working or volunteering throughout the competition across the varying cities that will be hosting games in the tournament.
The potential roles on offer include reporters, content creators and other staff that will help to make the event successful.
The Hundred Rising will launch 32 paid roles as part of the initiative across the men's and women's teams that have been created for this summer's competition.
The seven hit cities where opportunities could be found, include London, Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester, Southampton and Cardiff.
"Getting into a new industry isn't easy, let alone in the midst of a global pandemic and this is why I'm so passionate about The Hundred Rising," said presenter Vick Hope, who is supporting the campaign.
"It is a genuine commitment to providing real-world opportunities to help people move forward in their careers after the challenges of the past year."
Sanjay Patel, Managing Director of The Hundred added: "The Hundred is all about opening up the sport to broader audiences and giving people an opportunity and platform to showcase their talent both on and off the pitch.
