Investigations Executives x 3                

Start date: ASAP

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is the independent, self-regulatory body for advertising in the UK and works to ensure that ads are legal, decent, honest and truthful. Our work includes acting on and investigating complaints as well as proactively monitoring and taking action against misleading, harmful or offensive ads.

We are seeking candidates to manage a varied caseload of high quality and customer-focused investigations that cover a wide range of issues in TV, radio, print, poster and online ads. Frequently you’ll be considering whether or not the claims made in ads are misleading and looking at evidence provided by advertisers in support of them.  You will also investigate issues relating to sensitive and high profile areas such as gambling, alcohol, ads addressed to children and vulnerable people, and those which make reference to protected characteristics such as race and gender. 

The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to evaluate and distil a range of (often competing and complex) information in a thorough and unbiased manner before presenting their assessment of an ad’s likely compliance with the Advertising Codes both orally and in writing to senior colleagues, advertisers, complainants and the ASA Council.  You might also find yourself involved in or running a project that looks at a particular issue more widely.

In a community where sharing knowledge and ideas is valued, the successful candidate will be expected to learn quickly, work autonomously and find creative solutions to problems. They must also have an ability to collaborate effectively and develop strong relationships with colleagues and stakeholders alike.

The Investigations department includes those who came to the role from a variety of backgrounds: some with existing legal or regulatory experience, as well as career-changers and recent graduates. So whatever your background, if you're excited about the role we'd be keen to hear from you.

Due to Covid it is likely that the successful candidate will need to work remotely initially. In due course you should anticipate being based at our offices in London EC1.

How to apply: If you are interested in applying for these roles please visit our website to review the job description and complete the online questions outlining how you meet the requirements of the role and how you can contribute to the success of the Investigations department.  

Please note that these are full time roles however we are open to considering applications from individuals who wish to work on a more flexible basis, please state your preference i.e. hours and days of the week you’d prefer to work on your application.

The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Monday 01 February 2021
