Health and Wellbeing
Working in an interdisciplinary team of health practitioners, we provide a range of health and wellbeing screening, assessments and treatments from the time offenders are received into prison and into the community.
Skills we look for
Here's a snapshot of some of the key skills and attributes that we look for in our whānau.
Why a career at Corrections?
A highlight for me is seeing how even the smallest amount of change can make a significant difference to offenders.
