Rebecca and Moses are senior corrections officers at Rimutaka Prison.
Corrections officers serve the public by maintaining safety and security within a prison. They motivate and encourage prisoners to attend rehabilitation programmes, training and work.
Being a corrections officer means you will work in shifts, wear a uniform and protective gear like stab resistant body armour. You will enjoy being a role model and demonstrate the highest levels of integrity and credibility at all times. It’s a team environment where you look after each other and safety comes first.
You’ll need to be fit, have a clean police check and have a medical and drug test done before an offer of employment is made. You’ll also need a clean driver licence and a first aid certificate.
