Probation and Parole Officers
We are helping people to turn their lives around and build stronger communities.
Now is the time to consider a career in motivating offenders who have been to court or prison to stay on track.
Probation and Parole Officers work as part of a team to supervise adult offenders who have been sentenced to community based supervision.
You will work with offenders to ensure they understand the order and the conditions they must comply with, while encouraging positive changes in their behaviour. You will be responsible for completing offender reports and assessments for the courts and Parole Board.
Community Corrections service all of the Northern Territory with offices in Darwin, Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy, Groote Eylandt, Katherine, Wadeye and Tennant Creek reaching almost 80 remote communities. With such broad coverage many staff will have an opportunity to travel to remote locations.
Probation and Parole Officers enjoy a range of great benefits including:
- Six weeks annual leave
- Career development opportunities
- Supportive employer offering paid training for nationally accredited Certificate IV in Correctional Practice
- Opportunities for study assistance for tertiary education
- Opportunities for travel across the Northern Territory
To be successful in this role you will use your problem solving and time management skills, professional maturity and experience dealing with offenders to assist them to make positive change.
To achieve this you will require strong report writing and administration skills, the ability to develop rapport and to build effective professional relationships with a diverse range of people and an understanding of Aboriginal Australian culture.
