Three vacancies

Play your part in making ads responsible

The Advertising Standards Authority is the UK regulator of advertising across all media, including online.  Our work includes acting on complaints and taking proactive action against misleading, harmful, offensive or otherwise irresponsible ads.  ASA Council members rule on the acceptability of ads and act as directors of the ASA, helping to shape the direction of advertising regulation.

We have three Independent Member vacancies from April 2020, arising from existing Council members finishing their second three-year terms.  The successful applicants will serve on both the Non-broadcast and Broadcast Councils.
  
To qualify as an Independent Member, you will not have engaged in the business of marketing communications by virtue of current or previous employment by, or directorship of, or the provision of services to, an advertiser, agency or media company in marketing communications’ work.

We are particularly interested in candidates with experience of living and/or working in Wales.  

This is an exciting time to be joining our Council as we implement our 2019-2023 strategy: More Impact Online.  There are challenges and opportunities ahead.  Trust in advertising is low.  The pace of digital change is extremely high.  And Government initiatives in the form of the Online Harms White Paper and the DCMS Online Advertising Review provide the opportunity for us to make the case for our collective self-/co-regulatory approach, a case that we think is strengthened by our progress implementing our strategy.  We are proud of our role protecting people from misleading, harmful, offensive and otherwise irresponsible advertising.  But we need to do even more.  And a strong, dynamic and diverse ASA Council is fundamental to our future success.

Start date: April 2020.
