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 Warrnambool, you will manage the lowest risk offenders on court orders, through directing and monitoring compliance with court order obligations.  You will apply order administration activities to offenders on reparation orders and, where required, offenders at a low risk of reoffending.

You will refer offenders to relevant services, monitor compliance against order requirements, implement appropriate responses to non-compliance, and escalate matters as required to senior staff in a timely manner.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • service excellence with a focus on achieving service targets whilst maintaining service quality
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills with assertiveness and confidence in dealing with individuals exhibiting challenging behaviours
  • well-developed interpersonal and teamwork skills.

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.
