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

As the Officer in Charge, you will oversee office functions at Morwell Community Correctional Services in the absence of an Operations Manager. 

You will lead, manage and develop a team of staff in the Court Practice Stream.  This includes monitoring performance standards, enhancing staff capacity to deliver high quality court services, providing timely, organised and influential advice to courts and stakeholders involved in the sentencing process, and best practice case management services.

You will be required to adhere to local or regional rostering arrangements and other staffing management practices as directed.

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • experience and knowledge of best practice case management frameworks, including the provision of needs assessment in a human services context
  • an understanding and capability in leading and developing a team responsible for operational service delivery
  • the ability to implement theoretical concepts to reduce risk and maximise individual outcomes.

A relevant qualification in social work, human services discipline, criminal justice or criminology with experience in legislative frameworks 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.
