Would you like to have an impact on national health policy and improve the public’s health?  Action on Smoking and Health is a small charity that punches above its weight in influencing the health agenda.  For nearly half a century it’s been campaigning to reduce smoking, still the biggest cause of preventable death in the UK.  It’s played a major part in achieving bans on smoking in public places and in cars, advertising bans and other legislation to reduce death and disease from smoking and protect people from the effects of second-hand smoke.

ASH works in partnership with many health organisations with the same goals, so we’re looking for someone used to collaborative working and sharing ideas.  So, if you’re inspired about what we do and want to help us get our messages out there to change public policy and improve health, please see the application details below.
