Why a career?

Careers with this team

Corrections Officers

Ensure the safe, secure and humane containment of offenders and actively motivate them to make positive changes in their lives.

Case Management

Work with offenders to develop plans and ensure access to the treatments and programmes they need at the right level, at the right time.

Education & Instructors

Work with offenders to help them to gain new skills and qualifications to improve their chances of finding real jobs when they’re released.

Programme Facilitation

Run therapeutic programmes to help offenders understand the factors that led to their offending, take responsibility and motivate the change of their thoughts and behaviours.

Volunteers

Volunteering within Corrections supports our goal of reducing re-offending, by assisting offenders to meet their rehabilitative needs and transition back into society (reintegration).

Quote Start

A great day for me is when an offender comes back into the unit buzzing because they've passed a course. Their thanks to me for encouraging them makes me proud.
