The Alliance for Gambling Reform is seeking an experienced advisor with a strong track record of building impactful relationships to lead our statewide policy reform agenda to stop gambling harm.
Reporting to the Campaigns Director, you will use your expert influencing skills and knowledge of the Victorian political system to advocate for progressive reform of the gambling industry. You will oversee the development of advocacy and government relations strategies to achieve tangible policy outcomes.
As the only national organisation working to prevent and reduce the harm caused by a $25 billion gambling industry, the Alliance is committed to centering those hurt by gambling and their families at the core of our work. Working with our program managers, you will bring these stories to decision makers in government and business alike, demonstrating the devastating impact that gambling has on communities in order to influence better social and economic outcomes.
If you’re looking for a role that uses your skills and experience for good, then tackling Australia’s pokie barons and sportsbetting moguls is an exciting opportunity where you can make a real difference. Like tobacco, Australia’s gambling industries sell ‘products’ that are addictive, harmful and hugely profitable. You’ll be working to turn the tables, just like Australia has for tobacco.
As an Alliance, we bring together thousands of caring Australians, leading local governments and over 60 health, faith and community organisations who all share our vision for ending gambling harm.
You’ll be working with our highly-skilled and passionate team who love being nimble, trying new things and taking risks to win campaigns. Our team is in it for the long haul, and values work-life balance.
The Alliance recognises people often bring diverse skills. If you have skills beyond this position that you think will make you more valuable to the Alliance, include that in your application. We’re also open to reviewing the position and paygrade based on your skills and experience.
The Alliance is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage applicants of all backgrounds, cultures, genders, abilities and experiences to apply.
