Cor­rec­tional Of­fi­cer

Tas­ma­nia Prison Ser­vice, De­part­ment of Jus­tice

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWSFRONT -

The Tas­ma­nia Prison Ser­vice is seek­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from highly mo­ti­vated peo­ple who are look­ing for a chal­leng­ing ca­reer in the cor­rec­tional field, work­ing with a dynamic, di­verse and pro­gres­sive or­gan­i­sa­tion. Cor­rec­tional Of­fi­cers come from a wide range of back­grounds. They join us be­cause the work is re­ward­ing, di­verse and ab­sorb­ing. Although it is not with­out its chal­lenges, be­ing a Cor­rec­tional Of­fi­cer de­liv­ers a large amount of job sat­is­fac­tion and the knowl­edge that you are play­ing an ac­tive role in the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and rein­te­gra­tion of pris­on­ers, while also con­tribut­ing to the safety of the Tas­ma­nian com­mu­nity. Ap­pli­cants must be able to demon­strate ma­tu­rity along with good lit­er­acy, nu­mer­acy and com­puter skills. Prior train­ing, ex­pe­ri­ence and qualifications in cor­rec­tions are not re­quired. How­ever, ap­pli­cants should be able to demon­strate the fol­low­ing at­tributes: • team ori­en­ta­tion, very high level in­ter­per­sonal skills, in­tegrity, strength and stamina, re­silience, re­spect, sup­port­ive, ac­count­able, tol­er­ant, as­sertive, adapt­able, de­ci­sive, de­pend­able, courage, mo­ti­vated, pa­tient, ob­jec­tive, able to read peo­ple and sit­u­a­tions, able to think crit­i­cally and prob­lem solve. Suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants will un­dergo 12 weeks train­ing with the Tas­ma­nia Prison Ser­vice to help de­velop these skills and abil­i­ties and en­able them to be­come pro­fes­sional and ef­fec­tive Cor­rec­tional Of­fi­cers. The train­ing pro­vides suc­cess­ful trainees with the op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire a na­tion­ally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tion, the Cer­tifi­cate III in Cor­rec­tional Prac­tice (Cus­to­dial). Dur­ing the re­cruit­ment process ap­pli­cants’ suit­abil­ity to per­form the du­ties of a Cor­rec­tional Of­fi­cer will be as­sessed in a range of ways, in­clud­ing com­puter based lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy tests, skills as­sess­ments, a work­force health and fit­ness as­sess­ment and crim­i­nal his­tory check. Ap­pli­cants need only send in a cur­rent re­sume and Ap­pli­ca­tion for Em­ploy­ment form to be con­sid­ered for a po­si­tion.
