Victoria's new public Correctional Centre is approaching completion and now is the time to apply for ongoing jobs that will help shape the future operations of the facility. 

Employees working in the initial stage of operations will contribute to the foundations of the new facility by participating in the development of operating processes, services and procedures.

The new correctional centre will strengthen the way we work by harnessing innovative approaches and using the latest in technology to achieve improved outcomes for prisoners and the safety of the whole community.
