Great Britain’s gambling industry is in a constant state of change, fuelled by shifting consumer behaviour and the rapid growth of technology. It’s high profile politically too, and the legislation controlling gambling is constantly under scrutiny. Within this uniquely challenging and evolving environment, The Gambling Commission’s role is to ensure that gambling is crime free, fair and open - and that children and vulnerable people are protected. Now they need you to play a key role in their future, driving the change needed to ensure that the Gambling Commission can meet the growing complexity of the market and their developing regulatory remit.

- Help to prepare and maintain the communications planner
- Produce briefings for stakeholder meetings
- Co-ordinate event invitations and speaking opportunities

- In-depth knowledge of a stakeholder role in a communications department, within either a public sector organisation or regulatory environment
