Job description

Transform Drug Policy Foundation is a global leader in developing and advocating for more humane drug policies. We want to recruit a new Chair to help drive forward our work. Our current Chair, Jane Hickman, is retiring this year after five years in post.

This is an exciting time in drug policy. Rapid changes in approach are occurring in the UK and internationally. Transform has a long history of shaping these changes and seeking to ensure that reform reduces harm, improves social justice and protect public health. We aim to keep its research expertise at the forefront of the ongoing national discussion on drugs reform.

Our Anyone’s Child campaign is a highly effective family-led movement that has had a significant impact here and abroad and is an important part of the way we work to create change. You can find out more about our work via our website.

Our new Chair will help build on our success so far by providing leadership, good judgment, knowledge of policy and how it is made, and inculcating high standards of governance.

They will also ensure that that we continue to improve our ability to reflect the needs of those most affected by current drug policy: in particular, black and minority ethnic groups and the socially excluded. With the right Chair we hope to remain one of the leaders in our field.

We welcome applications from all candidates with the skills and commitment to support the work of Transform. We especially welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as part of our commitment to ensuring a full diversity of experience is reflected in the work we do.
