Job Requirements

To qualify, you will need to have client-side experience of advertising in a business that uses advertising. You will be able to bring your industry experience, expertise and insights to our regulation, but you will contribute as an individual not an advertiser representative.

Company Vision
This is an exciting time to be joining our Council as we implement the first year of our new 2024-2028 strategy, which focuses on AI-assisted regulation, putting the public first and working ever more collaboratively with both businesses and statutory regulators.

We are proud of our role protecting people from misleading, harmful, offensive and otherwise irresponsible advertising. But we need to do even more in a fast-changing world. A strong, dynamic and diverse ASA Council is fundamental to our future success.

"Keeping Ads legal, decent, honest, truthful"


ASA Annual Report - 6 Decades Of Independent Ad Regulation

The ASA and CAP Annual Report 2022

About Us

The Advertising Standards Authority is the UK's independent regulator of advertising across all media. We apply the Advertising Codes, which are written by the Committees of Advertising Practice. Our work includes acting on complaints and proactively checking the media to take action against misleading, harmful or offensive advertisements.

What we do

People should be able to trust the ads they see, hear and interact with. Content creators, and the brands they partner with, risk eroding that trust and the authenticity they’ve built with their followers if they post ads that are misleading, harmful or offensive. It’s really important therefore that ads on social media follow the same rules that apply elsewhere,” said the ASA in a blog post.

“We’ve been regulating social media ads for years and, as the world is increasingly online, it’s vital that creators and advertisers are carefully following our rules so that people are protected. We know from the complaints we receive how concerned people are with making sure the ads they see in social media are labelled clearly and upfront and that they are truthful.

Specific Objectives

We proactively tackle key issues including crypto ads, greenwashing, unlabelled influencer ads, and protecting our younger generation from age restricted advertising for gambling and alcohol.

We have gathered this 60 years of regulating advertisements into our ASA Annual Report.
