Sussex Cricket furlough majority of non-playing staff

Sussex Cricket has made the decision to furlough the majority of its non-playing staff under the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

A small number of employees will carry on working to ensure the continued operation of the club during this time.

Chief executive, Rob Andrew said: “The shut-down of cricket and with it nearly all the club’s commercial activities until the end of May at the earliest means that we were faced with no alternative but to furlough as many staff as possible during this period.

“The decision has been taken with one thing in mind, which is the protection of everyone at Sussex Cricket’s jobs once we emerge from these extremely challenging times.

“I want to thank our staff for their dedication, professionalism and understanding at what has been and remains a worrying and uncertain time. We are lucky to have so many excellent people working for the club.”
