Lantra, the sector-skills council for land-based industries, teamed up with the England & Wales Cricket Board to make a play for people looking to work in turf.
Lantra partnership manager David Winn said: "We love our sport in Britain, with millions participating at all levels every week at school, Sunday league or Edgbaston.
"And the condition of what you play on can make or break the event. The UK boasts an international reputation for maintaining good natural turf."
Chris Wood, pitch consultant for the board, said: "To look after a test pitch you must know basic foundation skills and have an open mind to absorbing continual development of innovations and science in the turf industry.
"For cricket, this means a pitch that lends itself to seam, bounce, spin or a belter of a batting track. Above all, you need a life-long passion for turf management."
