Alcohol Focus Scotland (AFS) is Scotland’s national alcohol charity, committed to preventing and reducing harm to individuals, families, communities and Scotland as a whole.

We are seeking a highly skilled policy professional to join our passionate team on a one-year contract to develop and manage our work promoting every child’s right to an ‘alcohol free childhood’. You will have a varied and challenging role, developing our evidence base and policy advocacy work in relation to alcohol marketing, as well as reducing the impact on children and young people of drinking by parents or carers. Your experience of working with diverse partners and people, and of developing practical policy options, will enable you to achieve impact, improving the lives of children and young people.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone to develop and shape the future activity of this programme and ensure that AFS continues to be at the forefront of influencing alcohol policy in Scotland.
