Senior Communications Manager, The Advertising Association
Advertising is a pillar of the creative economy and it is a UK service export success. Sports, media, arts and culture depend on advertising as a vital source of revenue. Advertising is what makes the web free. The Advertising Association is a tripartite organisation that represents the interests of the advertisers, the agencies and the media. Its purpose is to promote responsible advertising and its value to the wider society. The Advertising Association also provides a conduit between the industry and Government, working with our members, Parliamentarians, civil servants, and other trade associations on policy issues affecting the advertising industry.
Our Communications team delivers campaigns on behalf of the UK advertising industry across a wide range of industry issues, such as the economic performance of our industry, public trust and favourability towards advertising, as well as progressive workstreams dealing with climate action and inclusion. It is our job to manage, protect and enhance the reputation of the association, its members and of the industry itself, presenting a clear consistent set of messages in the most powerful way possible to all our key stakeholders.
We are looking to recruit an experienced Communications Manager to support all aspects of our communications work and strategy.

About the Advertising Association
The Advertising Association promotes the role and rights of responsible advertising and its value to people, society, businesses and the economy. Responsible businesses understand that there is little point in an advertisement that people cannot trust. That’s why, over 50 years ago, the Advertising Association led UK advertising towards a system of independent self-regulation which has since been adopted around the world. There are nearly thirty UK trade associations representing advertising, media and marketing. Through the Advertising Association they come together with a single voice when speaking to policy-makers and influencers.
