Ref: GSe45219

Drinkaware is an independent alcohol education charity working with both the alcohol industry and public sector bodies to tackle and help reduce alcohol-related harm. Established over 10 years ago by Government and the UK alcohol industry, our main objective is to positively change public behaviour by helping people make better choices about their drinking. Taking an evidence-based approach we ensure our campaigns and interventions make a real difference to people and we evaluate our work to learn for the future and increase our reach and impact. 

With the retirement of key Trustees later this year, we are looking for up to three exceptional individuals with appropriate backgrounds and interest in our work to join our Board and offer their expertise, wisdom and objectivity in the pursuit of our aims and ambitions. We’re particularly keen to hear from senior people who can offer significant personal and professional standing in alcohol-related health fields, public or commercial or in occupational health. Our ability to draw on the judgement and experience of senior clinicians and other senior health professionals at board level will continue to be essential in delivering our strategy, so at least one role will be filled through this community. We are also very interested in individuals who can offer professional experience of senior financial management.

If you believe you offer other relevant credentials – perhaps gained in marketing, or as a leader in business, for example – we would still like to hear from you if you think you have a significant contribution to make. With the Government due to announce its new alcohol strategy in 2019, now is an especially exciting time to be part of our Board and make a real impact on those whose attitudes and lives we influence. Our board is engaged and committed, and our trustees are drawn from a broad range of backgrounds. As ever, we are seeking people with sound judgement, independence of thought, integrity and a strong commitment to team work.
