We think the ASA is a great place to work and are proud to have a culture that is welcoming, open, friendly and collaborative. 

Working hours

Normal working hours are 35 per week, although we consider ourselves to be a flexible organisation and operate both a flexitime and accrued time system and we are accommodating to those who have commitments outside of work, considering appropriate flexible working requests from all staff.   

Holidays and benefits

Holiday entitlement starts at 25 days and builds up to 30 days after 5 years’ service, with an option to buy or sell up to 5 days each year.  We also offer an extensive range of benefits, including Life Assurance, interest free season ticket loan, membership of our contributory pension scheme, child care vouchers and membership of our Employee Assistance Programme, which provides confidential support and advice.  We also have a number of other flexible benefits, such as dental insurance and critical illness cover, which you can choose to buy annually through our flexible benefits provider. 

Social life

We are also a friendly and sociable organisation, holding an annual summer party and Christmas party as well as various other events throughout the year which are organised by our sports and social committee, a group of employees elected each year and given the task of arranging social events for the organisation. 

Our culture

We have four values that help support our culture and ambition to make every UK ad a responsible ad and describe how we work with each other internally and externally with our stakeholders. Our values also support the five strands of our strategy: Understanding, Support, Impact, Proactive and Awareness. Our shared values are:
  • Proactive
  • Collaborative
  • Accountable
  • Decisive 
We believe that we can offer you a positive working environment at the ASA where you will be contributing to media regulation, working hard to ensure our Advertising Codes are followed, while benefiting yourself from working for a flexible, supportive and competitive employer.
