Case Manager Drug Court – CCP3

  • Are you an experienced Case Manager looking to move into a specialised role?
  • Ongoing career and development opportunities
  • Based in Dandenong

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 Community Safety. CCS is a state-wide service providing for the management of offenders on court orders, serious sex offenders on post sentence supervision and prisoners on parole.  In this role CCS helps offenders break the cycle of offending, ensures court order conditions are met and, where they are not, prosecutes breaches in court.

CCS plays a vital role in contributing to the safety of the community by:

  • Applying case management practice that reduces reoffending,
  • Engaging offenders to build responsibility, and
  • Connecting offenders to programs, services and community. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Case Manager to move into a specialised role and play a critical role in both the lives of offenders and the safety of the community.

As a Drug Court Case Manager, you will monitor and supervise complex offenders with drug and/or alcohol dependencies who have been sentenced by the Drug Court Division of the Dandenong Magistrates Court to serve a Drug Treatment Order in the community. In addition to case management duties, you will also screen and assess potential candidates for their suitability for a Drug Treatment Order and provide regular feedback to the Court, both written and verbal.

About you . . .

Your knowledge and experience will demonstrate:

  • experience or understanding of effective case management practices; proactively managing risk with more complex individuals with drug related issues
  • experience or understanding of modelling pro-social behaviours with an ability to motivate and influence individuals
  • experience working in a legislative framework
  • assertiveness and confidence in dealing with individuals exhibiting challenging behaviours
  • capability to produce detailed reports and other standard documents in line with procedural guidelines.

This position is based in Dandenong. You may be required to work flexible hours or shift work, including weekends and public holidays, and attend call outs as required. Appropriate remuneration will be applied for the above in accordance with the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2016.

While no formal qualifications are required, a degree in an appropriate discipline such as Social Work or Criminal Justice is desirable.

Why work with us?

At the Department of Justice and Community Safety, we provide every person with the means to achieve their potential through ongoing learning, career 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.
