Job Description

As Probation Officer for Ara Poutama Aotearoa, you will work with people in our care and their whanau to address criminogenic behaviours and reduce reoffending. Using principles of manaaki, kaitiaki, wairua, rangatira, and whanau, you will manage community-based sentences and orders, whilst also preparing reports for the Courts and New Zealand Parole Board.

You will contribute to public safety, viewing this through the lens of manaaki, positive relationships, and the uplifting of wellbeing of people in our care. By focusing on the wellbeing of the person who has come into our care and management, you will help reduce the chances of them returning to the justice system. You will treat those in our care and management with respect, upholding their mana and dignity.

We are looking for people who:

  • are able to relate to people from a range of cultures and backgrounds
  • have excellent spoken and written communication skills
  • can work in a team and motivate others
  • can remain positive and resilient in difficult situations
  • are able to think critically and assess information.

You will also need Full New Zealand Drivers License and a legal right to work in Aotearoa without restriction for a minimum of 24 months. If you have worked with large caseloads before then this is a distinct advantage.

If you are a current Probation Officer please see the transfer policy on Tatou to submit an expression of interest for this position.

Being a Probation Officer is an incredibly exciting opportunity to make a real difference in your community. You'll have the chance to connect with people, build strong relationships, and do something which really makes a difference and improves public safety.
