Portman seeks new panel members

10 October, 2011

The Portman Group is looking for two new members to join its independent complaints panel.

For one of the vacancies it is particularly seeking someone with a health or alcohol services background.

The panel is an independent body which considers complaints about alcohol marketing under the Portman Group’s Code.

Its chairman, Sir Richard Tilt, said: “The panel performs a vitally important role in ensuring the strict standards for alcohol marketing in the UK are upheld. I am seeking applications from people with good analytical skills and sound judgement.”

Portman Group chief executive David Poley said: “The independent complaints panel is the ‘jury’ in our system. It is vital that its members are drawn from a diverse range of backgrounds. 

“Since the start of 2011, we have introduced a system of open advertising and recruitment to ensure that as many people as possible are aware of the panel vacancies when they arise. This is a great opportunity to be part of an independent body which can rule against irresponsible alcohol marketing.”
