Want to know more about us? 

We know that the choice to change organisations involves so much more than reading an advertisement and job description. Those things don't tell you anything about the team, the environment or people you will be working with. We are setting up some information sessions where you will get the chance to meet some of our great team, hear about the projects we have worked on, and ask questions. 

If you want to come along to one of these sessions and hear a bit more about what we do then please register your interest by contacting . The sessions will be held after the 24 September 2018. 

Otherwise if one of these opportunities sounds like your next career move, submit an application online and include which positions are of interest in your cover letter. We'd love to hear from you! 

Corrections embrace diversity and are committed to an inclusive workplace. We recognise and celebrate the uniqueness of individuals and celebrate the collective talent of all employees.


Applications close 7 October 2018.
