Recruiting for the ASA Council

Recruitment for this role is now closed - we are no longer accepting applications. 

We are the UK’s independent frontline regulator of ads by legitimate businesses/organisations in all media, including online. We are authoritative and influential on ad regulation; the centre of expertise.

ASA Council members rule on the acceptability of ads and act as board directors of the ASA, shaping the direction of advertising regulation. We have one Advertiser Background Member vacancy from April 2024.

To qualify, you will have client-side experience of advertising in a business that uses advertising. You will be able to bring your industry experience, expertise and insights to our regulation, but you will contribute as an individual not an advertiser representative.

This is an exciting time to be joining our Council as we implement the first year of our new 2024-2028 strategy, which focuses on AI-assisted regulation, putting the public first and working ever more collaboratively with both businesses and statutory regulators.

We are proud of our role protecting people from misleading, harmful, offensive and otherwise irresponsible advertising. But we need to do even more in a fast-changing world. A strong, dynamic and diverse ASA Council is fundamental to our future success.

Start date: April 2024.

How to apply:

Please read and complete as necessary the following documents: 

Closing date for applications: Monday 13 November 2023 at 10am.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community regardless of race, sex, age, religion/belief, sexual orientation or disability and expect candidates to honour the Seven Principles of Public Life. Please let us know if you require any reasonable adjustments at the interview stage.
