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. 

As Non-executive Director of our brand-new Trading Company, you will also sit on our Marketing Advisory Group as a co-optee, influencing our marketing and commercial strategy. The Group’s role is to advise the Drinkaware chief executive and senior leadership team members across a broad marketing and communications agenda and to act as a sounding board and supportive but critical friend. In particular, the Group will assist Drinkaware in making a shift away from being a passive provider of information to an organisation using deep consumer insights to drive behavioural change. To do this, we will use our formidable digital insights, innovations and brand to create commercial value for Drinkaware as well as deeper, more meaningful ways for consumers to engage with us.

We’re looking for an established marketeer with experience gained in the private health sector to take on this valuable non-executive role. You will share our passion for tackling and reducing the impact alcohol-related harm on peoples’ lives, have relevant professional experience and expertise and the ability to work well with the Board and Executive to help us realise our ambitions for bringing about widespread change. There will be a modest remuneration for this post which is to be agreed.
