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 Community Safety. 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 Ringwood, you will contribute to an integrated transition process from imprisonment into the community, with an overarching consideration for community safety. This will be done through performing Parole Suitability Assessments for prisoners who have applied for parole, supervising and monitoring complex and high-profile prisoners who have been released on parole by the Adult Parole Board (APB), and applying case management principles to reduce reoffending.

This also includes identifying risk escalation behaviours and responding appropriately in consultation with managerial staff, interviewing and assessing prisoners on parole to produce quality reports to the APB, and assessing and referring prisoners on parole to appropriate programs and specialised services.

Through this you will ensure that your case management practices align with best practice principles, in particular, the Corrections Victoria Offender Management Framework.

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • experience in the application of best practice case management and theoretical concepts to reduce risk and maximise client outcomes
  • experience in the case management of complex and high-risk clients
  • knowledge and experience in best practice risk and therapeutic initiatives
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills including detailed report writing experience.

Experience working within a legislative framework is also desirable.
