Who we are

In the Strategic Policy and Planning Division of Corrections Victoria we are the analysts, writers, networkers and researchers who help formulate the strategic direction of Corrections Victoria. As a major arm of the Department of Justice and Regulation, Corrections Victoria is a key pillar of the State's criminal justice system and plays a unique role in contributing to the Government's community safety agenda. Our division plays a central role within the organisation in developing and influencing evidence-based correctional policies.

What you'll do

As the Manager, Strategic Policy you will lead and manage a team responsible for the development and implementation of policies, frameworks and procedures to address emerging issues relevant to the correctional system. You will drive research and consultation to identify and analyse policy trends and provide authoritative advice to senior management.

Reporting to the General Manager, Strategic Projects and Policy, you will be working in an area of significant impact, with a dual focus on improving the rehabilitative outcomes of prisoners and offenders and on maintaining community safety.

Key projects

We have some exciting new projects underway, which include:

  • Examining innovative approaches to reducing reoffending
  • A range of strategy and policy work for specific cohorts such as remandees, women, prisoners and offenders with a disability, older prisoners and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

What we look for

If you are an experienced people leader, have an analytical mind, and a record of achievement in stakeholder management and developing well-argued policy recommendations to senior management in a complex environment, then we want to hear from you.
