GambleAware is an independent charity that commissions evidence-informed prevention and treatment services in partnership with expert organisations and agencies, including the NHS, public health agencies, local authorities and voluntary sector organisations. Our ambitious new five-year strategy was published in April this year, outlining four key strategic priorities to help us achieve a new vision of a society where everyone is safe from gambling harms.


Our five-year Organisational Strategy was published in April 2021, outlining four key strategic priorities to help us achieve a new vision of a society where everyone is safe from gambling harms. To help us achieve these priorities, we are now looking for a Trustee with the skills needed to ensure we stay connected with the environment we work in, and that we retain the quality of governance needed to operate effectively as a larger charity with increased and sustained funding.

We are interested in hearing from candidates from across the UK who offer depth of insight, experience, or influence within financial and business expertise. The Trustee should be a senior, qualified accountant who is well versed and has expertise in financial management and in ensuring the integrity of managing public money. Experience in investment would also be helpful.

We warmly welcome candidates with lived experience of gambling harms of similar, or experience of working directly with vulnerable communities.

All appointments require skills in strategic thinking with a collaborative approach and sound judgement. We are particularly keen to strengthen our ambassadorial capability and looking for people who are confident and credible relationship-builders and networkers outside the organisation. Central to our new strategic priorities is a deep commitment to ensuring that the core principles of equality, diversity and inclusion are woven throughout all aspects of delivery, leadership, and governance, as well as our strong commitment to continuous engagement with people with lived experience. We are actively seeking to broaden the diversity of our Board in all aspects, including culture and ethnicity, socio-economic and age diversity and welcome applications from all communities and backgrounds.

Wherever you are now, you will offer effective communication and interpersonal skills and a naturally collaborative style, along with a deep commitment to creating a society where everyone is safe from gambling harms. If you believe you have the skills, background, and qualities we are seeking, I very much look forward to hearing from you.
