Living in Swan Hill....

The Swan Hill region is hidden treasure, and we're happy for it to stay that way! But if you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and those long commutes, we are happy to share it with you.

Here in the Swan Hill region, you can enjoy a lifestyle that's as active or relaxed as you like. It's a place where people know your name and a safe place to raise your family.

We have the complete package - affordable homes, rewarding jobs, excellent services, a sunny climate and a fantastic lifestyle. With more than 500km of Murray River frontage, lakefront living at Lake Boga and everything from our rural city to small country townships, the biggest problem is deciding where to live.

About the role

Based in Swan Hill, 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.
