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.
We are now looking for new trustees to join the Board. Our new appointees will together offer the diversity and range of experience required to broaden the debate, ensure we stay connected with the environment we work in, and that we retain the quality of governance needed to operate as a larger charity with increased funding.
This is a particularly exciting time to join our organisation. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates from across the UK who offer depth of insight, experience or influence in one or more of the following areas: local government or the third sector; academic research ideally in the field of public health; impact measurement and evaluation; large scale commercial experience; new and emerging technologies (especially in relation to engaging with young people or marginalised communities); organisational change and development, and lived experience of gambling or other addictions, or experience of working directly with vulnerable communities.
Wherever you are now, you will be a highly skilled strategic thinker with a collaborative approach and sound judgement. You will bring excellent interpersonal and communication abilities and will be a confident and credible relationship-builder with a deep commitment to creating a society where everyone is safe from gambling harms.
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. These are voluntary appointments.
