About the role

Drug Court Case Managers monitor and supervise complex offenders with drug and alcohol dependencies who have been sentenced by the Drug Court division of the Magistrates Court to serve a Drug Treatment Order in the community.

In addition to case management duties, Drug Court Case Managers screen and assess potential candidates for their suitability for a Drug Treatment Order. They provide regular feedback to the Court, both written and verbal.

Based in Melbourne CBD, you will manage a case load of offenders with a range of order requirements aimed at reducing their risk of reoffending. This includes conducting risk assessments, preparing case plans, providing interventions and addressing the underlying causes of offending. You will also be responsible for directing and monitoring compliance with offender's court order obligations.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • demonstrated experience in managing highly complex / high profile caseloads, including proven assessment and intervention skills
  • experience working in a legislative framework
  • assertiveness and confidence in dealing with individuals exhibiting challenging behaviours
  • capability to produce detailed reports and other standard documents in line with procedural guidelines.

A relevant qualification in social work, human services, criminal justice or criminology or experience in a related field is also desirable.

A little about us

Corrections Victoria's purpose is to deliver an effective corrections system for a safe community. Community Correctional Services (CCS), is overseen by Corrections Victoria, a division of the Department of Justice and Regulation. CCS is responsible for the management and supervision of prisoners on parole, clients under post sentence supervision and court orders.

CCS is currently experiencing rapid growth in the offender population. In response to this, Corrections Victoria will embed evidence-based practice across all areas of our work and target responses to the areas that will allow the greatest impacts to be made. This approach will contribute to a safer community and strengthen CCS for the future.
