A career opportunity has arisen in ACT Corrective Services (ACTCS) for a highly motivated, values-driven professional to join Community Corrections and Release Planning as an Indigenous Probation and Parole Officer (PPO). A career as a PPO is unlike any other in the public service and is challenging and genuinely rewarding. In collaboration with offenders, you will be required to assess, develop, implement and monitor case management plans that aim to reduce the potential for reoffending.

As a PPO you will be required to provide written and verbal reports to the Courts and releasing authorities in relation to offender management, risk assessment and intervention. To be successful in this role, you will be able to work collaboratively, compose and edit complex written material and demonstrate a high level of analytical and organisational skills. A capacity to meet critical deadlines is essential. Whilst experience working with offenders and relevant tertiary qualifications are highly desirable, as is case management experience, we are interested in hearing from people from a variety of backgrounds.
