About the Role

In this role, you’ll be building a community of people who’ve been hurt by Australia’s gambling industry, empowering them to be ‘Champions of Change’. The program is an innovative, impactful and essential part of the Alliance campaign for gambling reform.

After successfully launching the program in South Australia and Victoria, you’ll be focused on rolling out the program in NSW. It’s a great opportunity to make a real difference in the movement to prevent harm from gambling. 

In this role, you’ll be working with a team that has excellent skills in advocacy, media, communication, organising and policy. 

If you’ve got experience in community development, public health promotion, community organising, or gambling counselling and are passionate about social change, make an application. 

About the Alliance for Gambling Reform

The Alliance campaigns for law reform to prevent the $24billion a year gambling industry from causing tremendous damage to people and communities. We’re a young, agile, national organisation that’s already making a huge impact with 66 organisations and thousands of individual supporters. 

We roll out campaign actions that align with our strategy, and that range from online campaigns, local opposition to new pokie pubs and clubs, through to supporting a landmark court case against Crown Casino and backing Coles to adopt our policy of capping bets to $1 a spin. 

We’re at www.pokiesplayyou.org.au and www.facebook.com/pokiesplayyou
