Development Lead (Inequalities)

  • Full time
  • £33,202 – £38,074
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 20th May 2019

  • Advertised from 26th April 2019


Action on Smoking and Health Scotland (ASH Scotland) is the independent Scottish charity taking action to reduce the harm caused by tobacco. Our vision is that everyone has the right to good health and to live free from the harm and inequality caused by smoking.

One of our key aims is to address the health inequalities that arise from smoking – knowing that the costs of smoking fall largely on disadvantaged communities. This is where you come in.

We are looking to recruit a Development Lead who will take forward our work in partnership with money advice and mental health support services, who will build our links with community and anti-poverty groups and who will help to develop our understanding of smoking as a social justice issue rather than a lifestyle choice.

The ASH Scotland staff team of 19 employees is based in central Edinburgh. Our work is funded by grants from the Scottish Government, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK and others. Our current organisational strategy prioritises improving mental health, reducing poverty, raising the next generation tobacco-free, culture change and driving action in partnership.
