About us

The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation is a statutory authority, established in 2011. Its mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of Victorians by working with communities and government to deliver effective, evidence-based initiatives to prevent gambling harm and provide support for those seeking help. The Foundation uses a public health approach to focus on prevention, early intervention and support for those who may experience gambling harm.  The Foundation works across Victoria.

Harm from gambling can happen much earlier than people realise and affect the health, wellbeing and financial security of even those who gamble infrequently. By partnering with others, the Foundation is working to raise awareness of gambling harm and provide access to a range of effective treatment and support. It also provides policy advice across government.  Prevention initiatives include state-wide advertising campaigns and community programs and work with venues to help create safer gambling environments.  The Foundations role extends to providing the latest information to community groups, local government and the public about gambling and its regulation in Victoria.  The Foundation is committed to a Victoria free from gambling related harm.  

About the role

The Professional Development Centre team works closely with funded community organisations, who provide a range of services for Victorians experiencing harm from gambling, including support tailored to the needs of individuals and communities at particular risk of harm, and prevention and early intervention initiatives.

The Senior Advisor, Clinical Partnerships and Sector Development will play a pivotal role in leading the strategic implementation of clinical partnerships and pilots.  The position will also assist in the development and delivery of effective, evidence based professional development and capacity building for those working in the funded sector, and other health and community sector employees.

Working closely with others in the Foundation, the Senior Advisor will be instrumental in continuously improving the clinical treatment and support programs of funded community organisations and make a significant contribution to the Foundation's research and prevention programs.

About you

A clinical qualification and registration (or eligibility to register with) either the Australian Psychological Society, Australian Association of Social Workers, the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia, or related professional body related field is highly desirable.
