Job Description

Senior Communications Adviser

Vacancy number: COSNO8910


The Department of Corrections is committed to keeping the public safe and reducing re-offending. 

We support people to lead crime-free lives, which means fewer victims and safer communities.


About you 

You will need to have a hands-on approach, be great with people, and be able to quickly get to grips with complex issues that have a wide variety of stakeholders. You will be capable of working independently and as part of a team, and will have a proven track record of delivering corporate communications with creativity and flair. 

We want to hear from you, if you:


  • relish working in a dynamic operational environment 
  • enjoy varied and interesting work with a wide range of stakeholders 
  • have strong strategic planning, writing and editing skills. This is a great opportunity for a senior communications professional with a least five years experience in this field. A relevant qualification is desirable and public sector experience would be of real value. 


The successful candidate will be a confident communicator, a self-starter and a creative problem-solver. You will possess energy and enthusiasm, and a 'can-do attitude. It is a busy and varied role, with a largely internal focus. There is complexity and challenge, so you will need to be adaptable and innovative to thrive in this environment.
