Today in New Zealand, around 10,000 people will have lunch in a prison cell. This week, Corrections will manage around another 30,000 individuals serving a sentence in the community.
Corrections officers, probation officers, case managers, psychologists, instructors, nurses and programme facilitators are just a few of the many frontline staff who work with offenders in prison and the community, on a daily basis, to improve public safety and support offenders to turn their lives around.
Take a look at our new frontline jobs website to learn more about working on the frontline at Corrections.
Staff based at National Office and in the regions work behind the scenes to support our 24-hour frontline operations. There are programme designers and policy advisers, as well as people working in administration, legal, property, communications, human resources, finance and information technology.
