They are responsible for supporting the Community Work Supervisors and in-the-moment decision making. They are also responsible for assessing community projects; developing and maintaining relationships with our project sponsors; ensuring health and safety information for each work site is current; and ensuring accurate record keeping.

Senior Community Work Supervisors, along with Community Work Supervisors,  oversee and manage people undertaking their community work sentence. They work with people from the time they are inducted into their community work sentence and provide support to engage them in completing their hours. It is also an opportunity to develop work and social skills.

In addition they manage people who are on community detention, a sentence that restricts people’s movements on an electronically monitored curfew.

They have a people-orientated approach as well as the ability to motivate and encourage others while being patient and enforcing the rules.
