Vacancy: Head of Gambling Action Lab

Our Head of Gambling Action Lab is a new role that will lead a ground-breaking, multi-year programme of work.

All too often, people experiencing harm as a result of gambling can struggle in silence. But financial services firms have a unique insight into their customers, with data on spending and withdrawals. Through this programme, we’ll be teaming up with financial services firms to understand what they can do to better protect their customers from gambling-related harms.

This is a three-year fixed-term position. The full-time equivalent salary is £58,000.

This role is offered as full-time (37.5 hours over 5 days a week) or part-time (minimum 30 hours over 4 days).

We welcome applicants from across the UK. We are based in central London, but this post can be offered on a remote-working basis with two days a month in the office.

The closing date is 9am, Wednesday 27 September 2023. Interviews will be held weeks commencing Monday 2 and Monday 9 October.

We are an equal opportunities employer and Mindful Employer and welcome applications from all, including those with lived experience of a mental health condition and other under-represented groups. We are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments individuals may require in the recruitment process or once in post.

We are committed to remove unconscious bias as much as possible from our recruitment process. We therefore use a platform called Be Applied which allows us to blind review applications without seeing details such as names and education details. You will be asked to write short answers to a few questions, specifically designed to test the skills we are looking for in the person specification. Your answers will be anonymised (all identifying information will be removed) and randomised. You can read more about the principles behind the blind review process here.

As part of the application process, you will still need to provide a CV but this will only be considered if you score well enough on the blind review. Please include details of two referees in your CV (we will only contact them if you are offered the position).

If you require any reasonable adjustments to be able to access any part of this process please do let us know by emailing [email protected].
