Hybrid working from home and in London
Circa £80,000

Drinkaware is an independent charity working to enhance public health and understanding about alcohol consumption. We are here to help people make better choices about drinking and in turn reduce alcohol misuse and harm in the UK. We engage and work directly with both the alcohol industry and public sector bodies to tackle alcohol-related harms. We are passionate in our belief that working together we can help make the home and workplace healthier, safer and more productive. As we emerge from COVID new data is starting to show changes in consumption patterns; we are also seeing increased political focus on social inclusion, ‘levelling up’ and standards of public behaviour. These topics are intertwined with alcohol, creating an imperative for Drinkaware to think afresh about how we support citizens and employers as they make informed and responsible drinking decisions. Our ability to work in partnership with public agencies and business will be critical if we are to reach a wider audience and target specific interventions on those at greater risk of harm.
