Probation Officer - Greymouth

losing Date: 9 July 2019

Location: Greymouth, 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.

Ideally you will have either qualifications relating to the position, or have experience working with a diverse range of people with relation to high volume caseloads. These skills must also be backed by your outstanding administration experience.

 

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 required to attend an Assessment Centre in Christchurch on 30 July 2019. Prior online testing deadlines will need to be adhered to in order to make it through the recruitment round.
