Program & Organisational Background
The Pharmacotherapy Advocacy Mediation and Support (PAMS) service is a state-wide, telephone-based service that provides mediation, support, advocacy, referral, and information for those involved with treatment for opioid dependence (methadone and buprenorphine).


HRVic is a community-based, membership-driven organisation, with a mission to advance the health and human rights of people who use illicit drugs and those on pharmacotherapy. We work to reduce stigma & discrimination against people who use drugs, and we strongly encourage people with a lived experience of illicit drug use – current, recent or past included – to apply.


We value this lived experience highly; however, as this role is not a peer education role, all applicants will be considered.

Note: We are required by the terms of our funding to undertake a Working With Children Check on people likely to work with those under 18 and a Police Record Checks on potential employees. A police record does not automatically disqualify anyone from working at Harm Reduction Victoria. The nature of the record and its potential impact on the role will be taken into account by the organisation. Please do not let this stop you applying. If you have any queries or concerns about this process, please contact HRVic at admin@hrvic.org.au using the subject line: Service Officer, Pharmacotherapy Advocacy Mediation and Support enquiry.
