Probation Officer - Alexandra

Closing Date: 27th January 2018

Location: Alexandra, Southern Region

 

TEAMWORK. VARIETY. CHALLENGE. 

 

Probation Officers play a vital role in making communities safer. By effectively managing sentences and orders such as community work, home detention and parole, Probation Officers aim to minimise risk of further harm.

 

As a Probation Officer you’ll work closely with offenders to make sure they’re meeting the conditions of their sentence or order. You’ll assess people and their situations to manage risk, set and maintain boundaries and motivate offenders to make positive changes.

 

You’ll be someone who relates to people from all different backgrounds and cultures - you’ll need resilience, common sense and maturity.

 

If you’re a solid communicator, computer literate, and have strong written skills, becoming a Probation Officer could be an excellent career choice for you. You’ll have the chance to connect with people, build strong relationships and do something which really makes a difference and improves public safety.

 

As an employer, the Department of Corrections offers personal and professional development, clear career progression and job security.

 

If you are sucessful in your initial application and you are a Non-Frontline staff member then you will be invited to attend our Assessment Centre which is already booked for 27-28 August at this stage. Testing deadlines will need to be adhered to in order to be considered this round.

 

If you are currently a Probation Officer from another location then we welcome Transfer requests via Tatou.
