Otago body restructures

Otago Cricket Association has made one employee redundant and reduced the hours for two others following a staff review.

The association undertook a staff review as part of Covid-19 mitigation process.

It has made some changes to its organisation structure which "unfortunately includes one redundancy with two other positions reduced to 0.75 FTE roles", chief executive Mike Coggan wrote in an email to the Otago Daily Times.

The roles of capability manager and community cricket manager were effectively rolled into one job.

"Both incumbents were provided an opportunity to interview for an internal appointment," Coggan wrote.

However, Coggan said community cricket manager Will Deerness decided against applying for the new role and Andrew Petrie was appointed as the general manager community cricket.

All four cricket development positions were disestablished and other similar roles established in their place.

Jess Davidson will take up the Dunedin-based cricket development role and assume leadership of the development of female cricket.

Sam Bastin and Mark Reid will assume 0.75 FTE cricket development roles in Otago Country and Southland respectively.

Will Kindley will assume dual responsibility of 0.5 FTE cricket development role in Dunedin and the 0.625 FTE marketing and communication officer

Tim O’Sullivan will assume the new role of manager operation, programmes and venues

The association is interviewing for a 0.75 FTE Dunedin cricket competition manager, a role previously performed by O’Sullivan.

It has also decided not to recruit for a replacement for Volts assistant coach Anton Roux, who left towards the end of last season.

The Volts management will instead "reorganise its performance staff to manage this responsibility".

Adam Miles will join the Volts coaching staff and also assume responsibility as the talent pathway manager.
