Job Description

Vacancy Number: CSLNR9290
Location: Wellington Region

Do you want to change lives for the better?

Do you have the integrity, attitude and capability to bring about positive change in people?

Join us in making our communities safer.

Programme Facilitators work with offenders, helping them to understand and address the causes of their offending, and create crime-free futures. They do this through delivering a range of therapeutic intervention programmes, either individually or with a co-facilitator.

Our Programme Facilitators come from different backgrounds, cultures, education and experience – but they all share the ability to motivate others to make positive changes in their lives

We need people who:

  • Have experience in delivering group or individual therapy
  • Are effective communicators and have relationship management skills
  • Have knowledge of Maori culture, protocols and peoples
  • Are excellent report writers

A full New Zealand Drivers Licence is essential, as travelling is required at times within the district.

You will need to have an understanding of the dynamics of individual and group behaviour, and a relevant tertiary education - psychology, social work, counselling or a related area is desirable.

We will give you full training in facilitation skills, cognitive-based therapeutic programme principles and delivery and the support you need to be part of a team working to make communities safer.

If you would like to find out more about this role, we are holding an information evening on Wednesday, 18 April 2018 at Rimutaka Prison,Trentham, Upper Hutt. If you would like to attend please register by sending an email to:, and a confirmation email will be sent to you. Please be aware spaces are limited.

Applications must be submitted through the online system at before the closing date of Sunday, 29 April 2018. E-mailed applications will NOT be considered.

If you are an internal applicant already employed as a Programme Facilitator and you wish to transfer location, there is no need to complete the full application process. Instead, please register your interest for an internal transfer.
