Join Victoria’s new independent gambling regulator

Join Victoria’s new independent gambling regulator

The Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission is recruiting to dozens of roles to ensure integrity and fairness of the gambling industry and to protect the community from gambling-related harm.

Who we are

After being established on 1 January 2022, and transitioning its liquor regulation responsibilities on 1 July 2022, the VGCCC is now focused exclusively on casino and gambling regulation.

It’s an exciting time to join the VGCCC. It has new powers, a sharper focus on harm minimisation and holding the casino and gambling industry to account. And it’s growing – not just in size, but in the specialist skills and technologies it deploys.

There are also big plans for how the VGCCC will transform its approach to ensuring the integrity, fairness and safety of the gambling industry for the benefit of all Victorians.

What we do

We assess and determine gambling-related applications

These can range from a new gaming venue or an increase in gaming machines, to a community raffle.

We consider each application carefully, based on the level of risk it may pose to the community.

We monitor compliance with gambling laws

We conduct around 8,500 inspections of licensed premises every year to ensure:

  • people under 18 do not gamble, are not encouraged to gamble, and do not enter gaming rooms
  • gambling activities are conducted honestly, free from criminal influence and exploitation

We use data and intelligence – including complaints – to investigate activities that present the greatest risk of harm, and audit venues to ensure gambling revenue is distributed correctly.

We take action on any breaches of the law

When we identify breaches, we have a range of enforcement actions to choose from, from education through to criminal prosecution.

We inform and educate the sector

We host a range of sector and community information sessions, administer training, run educational campaigns, and develop clear and engaging resources for the sector to use.

Qualifications & experience required

Over the coming months, more than 40 generalist and specialist roles will be advertised.

These include:

  • Gambling inspectors
  • Administrative support staff
  • Data scientists
  • Forensic accountants

Personal qualities

We’re looking for candidates who:

  • are of the highest integrity, and who have the confidence and courage to make an impact
  • need to find deeper meaning and purpose in their work and want to protect the community from harm
