The Gambling Commission is an independent, non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Our role is to regulate commercial gambling in Great Britain (including the National Lottery). Working as part of the Fourth National Lottery Licence Competition (4NLC) team means being part of one of the most exciting competitions in recent history. Preparing for the next licence, we are developing the competition and associated regulation to determine who will run the NL when the current licence ends. Society has changed so much since this was last renewed. With the rapidly digitising economy, this competition presents the perfect opportunity to build a National Lottery that works in today’s digital world. Your work here will be instrumental in making sure that the future NL is fair, safe and continues to maximise returns to good causes, supporting the arts, heritage, sport and communities across the UK.
Role purpose and scope
Provide strategic vision, leadership and delivery on policy issues associated with the competition for the 4NLC and promote that understanding within the programme and beyond.

Strong analytical skills and experience of developing regulatory policy. You'll evaluate the rationale for existing arrangements and the case for change, providing advice and anticipating and responding to factors which may require the regulatory framework to evolve.
Experience of developing effective stakeholder engagement internally and externally. You will build relationships with key stakeholders, which include the DCMS, to navigate and resolve novel and complex issues effectively.
Experience of producing a variety of clear and concise documents, including policy positions, Board papers and public consultations, and presenting these to a range of internal and external audiences. Experience of working on significant, complex programmes of work with challenging deadlines, from initiation through to implementation.
