Shisha Ambassador

You will be part of a team aiming to reduce the number of people engaging in shisha pipe smoking and chewing tobacco. A significant number of people who engage are unaware of the dangers associated with these activities and some believe it to have health benefits, which simply is not true…Just one hour of smoking shisha is equal to inhaling the smoke of over 100 cigarettes. This role is about sharing information that will help people make informed decisions in recognising the health risks associated with smoking shisha and chewing tobacco.
