Investigations Executive

Open to flexible working         

Salary: £36,299 FTE plus flexible benefits         

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 lead investigations into whether ads are misleading, offensive or irresponsible.

Investigations Executives manage a varied caseload of investigations that cover a wide range of issues in TV, radio, print, poster and online ads. You will consider whether claims made in ads are misleading and assess 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 those which make reference to protected characteristics such as race and gender. 

You might also find yourself involved in or running a project that looks at a particular issue more widely. The role provides an opportunity for you to make a real impact by helping to protect consumers from misleading or irresponsible ads.

The ability to evaluate complex information is an essential part of the role. You will also need to present your assessment of a case clearly and succinctly in writing and orally to internal and external stakeholders, so strong communication skills are vital.

We have a culture that's open, friendly and collaborative, with a real focus on making the right decisions in the right way, and learning while we're doing it. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and we're committed to being a diverse and inclusive organisation, both so we can represent everyone in the UK and so our own colleagues feel at home at work.

We will provide all the training you need on the advertising rules themselves to enable you to assess whether ads comply with them. So whatever your background, if you're excited about the role we'd love to hear from you. 

How to apply: If you are interested in applying for this role please visit our website by clicking the 'Apply' button 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 we’ll keep the ad open till we fill the post and will be reviewing the applications as they come in.  We encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
