Advertising Advisory Committee members – four vacancies

Can you play a vital role in the regulation of TV and radio advertising?

We’re looking to appoint four new Members for BCAP’s Advertising Advisory Committee

The Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice (BCAP) is the advertising industry body responsible for setting standards for television and radio advertisements under powers contracted out to it by Ofcom.

The Advertising Advisory Committee (AAC) gives informed, independent advice to BCAP on the formulation of rules and guidance related to the regulation of broadcast advertisements.  It meets up to six times a year and consists of a Chairman, the Chairman of BCAP and Members who represent the interests of citizens and consumers and participate as individuals and not as representatives of organisations or interests.  Members must not have either present or past involvement with the marketing business. 

We’re now looking to appoint four new Members to join the Panel from January 2016 to replace Members who are coming to the end of their terms of office.  Members will serve for a three-year period, which may be extended for another three years and receive a sum of £6,050 a year plus expenses.

In selecting Members, the Chairman aims to achieve a balance and breadth of skills on the Committee.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community regardless of race, gender, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation or disability and expect candidates to honour the Seven Principles of Public Life.

Start date:

Beginning from January 2016
