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

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.

Based in Shepparton, you will manage a case load of predominantly Aboriginal offenders with complex needs and those who have committed serious offences, delivering dynamic evidence based best practice case management.

You will also lead the provision of advice to Community Correctional Services managers and staff on issues impacting the effective case management of Aboriginal offenders, and the development and implementation of cultural support plans for Aboriginal offenders.

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

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • the ability to communicate sensitively and effectively with members of the Victorian Aboriginal Community
  • an understanding of the Victorian Aboriginal Community, both socially and culturally, and the issues impacting on it
  • an understanding of, or experience in, effective case management practices including proactively managing risk of complex individuals
  • an understanding of, or experience in, modelling pro-social behaviours, motivating and influencing those being case managed
  • assertiveness and confidence in dealing with individuals exhibiting challenging behaviours.

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.
