While at La Trobe, Scott was involved in student politics and was one of the alleged conspirators of the SRC ballot rigging incident. Along with three other candidates facing charges, Scott withdrew his nomination. Three of the accused, Larocca, Donnelly and Scott were subsequently hired in 1996 as electorate officers for the Australian Labor Party, with Scott becoming secretary of the party's Preston Branch.
In 2006, he was selected as the Labor candidate for Preston, a safe seat being vacated by sitting member Michael Leighton. He has represented the seat since. Robin Scott served as Victorian Labor's Shadow Minister for Finance and WorkCover after their loss at the 2010 state election. On 4 December 2014 he was sworn in as Minister for Finance and Minister for Multicultural Affairs.
