Founded in 1997, GamCare is the leading provider of information, advice and support for anyone affected by gambling harms. We operate the National Gambling Helpline, provide treatment for anyone who is harmed by gambling, create awareness about safer gambling and treatment, and encourage an effective approach to safer gambling within the gambling industry.


The Role

This is a great opportunity to join GamCare as we are in a position to appoint several Gambling Treatment Practitioners with qualifications or experience in health or social care, and an empathic style to enable people to change their behaviour through skilled intervention.

As the successful candidate you’ll deliver a range of face to face (as required), telephone and online interventions to support people affected by gambling harms at all stages of their treatment and recovery journey, including in a range of community based and custodial settings (as required).

If this sounds like you, and you would like to be part of a committed, dynamic, and highly supportive team, providing exceptional support to those whose lives are impacted by gambling, then we would love to hear from you!


You will be an excellent communicator, with lots of emotional intelligence, and the ability to prioritise your own self-care and wellbeing. You will have great organisational skills, be a strong team player and be confident navigating IT systems and software packages.
