At the Department of Corrections our goal is to reduce re-offending, and underlying this is a strong commitment to public safety.
Our people care about our communities and want to make New Zealand a safer place to be. We do this by helping people lead crime-
free lives, which means fewer victims and safer communities.
You can make a real difference and help us work towards this goal by taking part in the Department of Corrections Internship Programme.
We are looking for energised and engaged University students from a broad range of disciplines, who are capable of working both collaboratively and independently.
You will be involved with work related to your studies and in turn will gain first-hand experience of the Public Sector and the work we undertake within Corrections.
We have opportunities for students to attain employment across a diverse range of areas.
This internship will involve undertaking research and plan development focussed on the wellbeing of Community Probation staff.
The project will involve an analysis of the current well being plans for each of the Community Corrections sites with feedback provided to District Management around the plans.
The second area of focus will involve working with the local management around improvements to the plan, and strategies for staff to buy into and progress the plan.
Strong Research and analysis skills are necessary and an understanding of models of well being would be highly desirable.
This will involve stakeholder engagement so excellent communication skills both oral and written are required.
