The Department of Corrections is a core part of New Zealand's Justice Sector. Our vision is to improve public safety and reduce re-offending through strong leadership, capable staff, a safe working environment and effective partnerships.


We have an exciting opportunity for clinical psychologists to join our team in Hastings.

You already know how beautiful New Zealand is - the otherworldly peaks and valleys of Middle Earth brought this not-so-hidden secret to the world with good reason. But these views are no Hollywood-crafted mirage - they are the real deal, and certain to take your breath away. From the coolest little capital in the world, to the alpine mountains and glaciers we have it all.


As a psychologist with the Department of Corrections you will have the opportunity to explore the country while also providing clinical risk assessments and treatment for prisoners and offenders in the community. You may also have the opportunity to be involved in research work in the context of the scientist/practitioner model.

At Corrections our goal is to reduce re-offending. With the position of psychologist playing a key role in this, you can be a part of this.


Salary: NZD $71,707 to $110,448 (dependant upon professional competency assessment)
