Join the BGC team


The Betting and Gaming Council is the new standards body for the betting and gaming industry and its members include betting shops, casinos and online betting and gaming companies.

Betting and gaming is a key part of the UK’s dynamic and diverse leisure and entertainment industry. The industry contributes over £3.2 billion in taxes to the UK Exchequer and directly provides work for over 100,000 people. We work with our members, large and small, to raise standards, create a culture of safer gambling and build public and institutional trust in our world class industry.

Established in 2019, the BGC puts the customer first to drive standards over and above regulatory requirements to ensure a safer, fairer betting and gaming experience for all.


The opportunity

Over the last year, the BGC has built a strong and professional team delivering for our members and their strategic priorities. We are now seeking a Parliamentary Affairs Manager to join our Corporate Affairs team and to help take our parliamentary and public affairs work to the next level. Working closely with others in the BGC team, you will develop and grow our work with parliamentarians in Westminster and the devolved nations, to increase the understanding and respect of the work of our members in delivering a safer, fairer betting and gaming experience.

The role is full time, based in our offices in Westminster, with salary up to £45,000 per annum. BGC aims to be an excellent employer and offers significant benefits in addition to your salary, including a contributory pension scheme (10% employer; 5% employee)

About you

You will have some experience and a good working knowledge of Parliamentary procedure and policy making. You will be a confident communicator, both in person and in writing, with experience of working or supporting a political or public affairs function, and working closely with stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds.

You will be comfortable in analysing documents and publications and formulating responses to consultations with tight deadlines. You will also be a persuasive communicator and able to influence others in a positive way.

Some knowledge of the betting and gaming industry would be an advantage but not essential, but the willingness and ability to learn fast, and apply that learning to help BGC achieve its objectives is essential.
