About us

Corrections Victoria is committed to the delivery of responsive and culturally appropriate services that meet the objectives to reduce the overrepresentation of Aboriginal people within the Criminal Justice System as part of the Aboriginal Justice Agreement, through the provision of correctional supports and services that reduce the risk of reoffending.

Corrections Victoria (CV) understands that to reduce the overrepresentation of Aboriginal people in the justice system and to achieve a reduction in the rate of reoffending, unique strategies and initiatives must be implemented. Through its long-standing commitment to the Aboriginal Justice Agreement, the Aboriginal Social and Emotional Wellbeing Plan, the Koori Inclusion Action Plan and in partnership with the Victorian Aboriginal community, CV has developed this unique Aboriginal Case Manager role.

The Aboriginal Case Manager role is responsible for managing a caseload of predominately Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander (Aboriginal) offenders using a range of order requirements to reduce the risk of reoffending.  By developing individual cultural support plans and interventions, this role will also seek to address the underlying causes of offending whilst directing and monitoring compliance with court order obligations.

This role may also at times be required to provide advice to the Koori Court to assist in the sentencing process.  

To be successful in this role you will:

  • have knowledge of case management processes and frameworks
  • have the ability to develop relationships with Aboriginal organisations and other organisations that support and strengthen the case management process.
  • have the ability to communicate sensitively and effectively with members of the Victorian Aboriginal community
  • have knowledge and an understanding of the Victorian Aboriginal community and the social and cultural issues impacting upon it.
  • have knowledge and experience to provide strong personal guidance and advice and have the ability to negotiate from a position of strength. 

This is an Aboriginal identified position; Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply.
