Safe gambling organisation, GambleAware, has welcomed three public health experts to its senior team. New hires include a Chief Commissioning Officer, a Chief Communications Officer and a Chief Operations Officer.

The rationale behind this recruitment drive is to accelerate and enhance the company’s ambition to tackle gambling-related harm. 

Anna Hargrave, who has worked for the NHS for more 13 years, has been appointed as GambleAware’s new Chief Commissioning Officer. Talking about her new position, she said:

“I am deeply passionate about reducing health inequalities in the UK and minimising the impacts of gambling harm on people and their families is a key component of this.

“I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to share my skills of working within the health and care system with GambleAware, and look forward to working with the charity and other public health agencies, local authorities and organisations to help reduce gambling harms.”

Alexia Clifford, Marketing Director at Public Health England (PHE), will be taking on the role of Chief Communications Officer: 

“I am thrilled to be joining GambleAware, and to play my part in delivering its vision of a society where people are safe from gambling harms. I look forward to bringing my skills and expertise to this crucial public health priority, and to leading communications and marketing programmes that make a demonstrable contribution to improving people’s lives."

Zoë Osmond, GambleAware’s Chief Executive, commented on the development of the team: 

“We are very pleased to welcome our new senior leaders, each of whom bring with them invaluable skills and knowledge in areas integral to the successful delivery of our new five-year organisational strategy.

“We are working hard to drive forward GambleAware’s new program of work, which demonstrates leadership in establishing, developing, and maintaining a coordinated network of services, including the expansion of the National Gambling Treatment Service.”
