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.

About the role

Based in Werribee, you will apply court services work practices as well as evidence based case management practices, to a caseload of offenders assessed at a medium or high risk of reoffending.

As part of this dual role, you will apply relevant court services work practices, including conducting assessments to determine an offender's suitability for a court order, facilitating order variations and prosecuting offenders who fail to comply with their orders.

You will utilise evidence based case management practices to actively engage offenders and ensure responsive, targeted interventions to assist in reducing their risk of reoffending, supporting offenders to successfully complete their court orders, while balancing risks to community safety.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • experience or understanding of effective case management practices; proactively managing risk with more complex individuals
  • experience or understanding of modelling pro-social behaviours with an ability to motivate and influence individuals
  • experience or understanding of court processes, prosecutions or related areas
  • assertiveness and confidence in dealing with individuals exhibiting challenging behaviours.

A relevant qualification in social work, law, human services, criminal justice or criminology, or experience in a court advice, assessments or prosecutions is also desirable.

Why work with us?

At the Department of Justice and Regulation, we provide every person with the means to achieve their potential through ongoing learning and development opportunities in a diverse, equitable and supportive environment.

We look for people who are prepared to do their very best in line with our values and behaviours. Our values shape and influence how we recruit, train and develop our staff and build relationships with stakeholders. 

We will also provide you with professional development opportunities, an employee assistance program, access to job opportunities across the Victorian Government, salary packaging and much more.
