Full Description

Background Information: Alcohol Action Ireland is a non-governmental agency who act as an expert independent voice for policy change on alcohol-related issues, advocating to reduce levels of alcohol harm in Ireland and improve public health, safety and wellbeing.

We campaign for the burden of alcohol harm to be lifted from the individual, community and State, and have a strong track record in advocacy, campaigning and policy research.

Our work involves providing information on alcohol-related issues, creating awareness of alcohol-related harm and offering policy solutions with the potential to reduce that harm, with an emphasis on the implementation of the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill.

The Role: Reporting to the Board, the CEO will be a confident, innovative leader with a talent for developing and maintaining effective relationships and a track record in developing engaging advocacy and awareness programmes.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced and dynamic individual to lead and expand Alcohol Action into the future – you’ll work closely with the Board to develop and deliver a new strategic plan focusing on a broad set of deliverables whilst managing the overall operations of the organisation.

Ideally, you’ll be someone who has proven themselves as a successful Senior Manager with excellent leadership and partnership building skills. Knowledge and experience of the not-for-profit sector would be a distinct advantage, particularly some direct experience of health, social issues and policy matters. You will also have financial acumen and governance experience, and have operated effectively at strategic level.

In order to succeed in this role, you will be a quick thinker with well-developed political insight and you will be comfortable dealing with the media. You will be able to balance the various demands on your time as well as acting at a national and international level to engage with government, EU organisations, regulators, and other organisations in this field as well as media and thought leaders.

If you feel you have the skills, experience, drive and enthusiasm to take this well-established advocacy organisation to the next level, we would love to hear from you!
