Prison Officers - Multiple Positions

Hudson is pleased to be partnering with the Victorian Department of Justice and Regulation in the recruitment of prison officers across the state’s prison network.

There are 11 public prison facilities in Victoria, and most welcome new squads once or more annually. The great news is specific formal qualifications aren’t required, a great attitude and work ethic is more important. This could be the change of career you’re looking for!

As a prison officer, you will play a vital role in making the state of Victoria a safe place to live. You will be tasked with securing offenders and assisting in their rehabilitation. Your challenge is to help them return home with a greater respect for our laws and a willingness to positively contribute to their communities.

It’s important work.

To thrive in the job, you will need energy, empathy and resilience. We are not concerned about which gender you identify as, or if you’ve been a tradie, an accountant, a hairdresser or a teacher – we want prison officers with life skills. We want officers who communicate well and can find common ground with anyone.

What you'll do on the job:

  • Assist your caseload of prisoners to achieve their personal and professional goals leading towards reintegration in society.
  • Work on your assigned prisoners’ Individual Management Plans, ensuring that the programs they are participating in are linked to their needs and objectives.
  • Build relationships with your teammates and other stakeholders, contributing towards a positive and enjoyable working environment.
  • Assist with the safety and security of prisoners, your teammates and visitors.
  • Conduct regular patrols, searches and security-related activities.
