Who we are

In the Strategic Policy and Planning Division of Corrections Victoria we are the analysts, writers, networkers and researchers who help formulate the strategic direction of Corrections Victoria. As a major arm of the Department of Justice and Regulation, Corrections Victoria is a key pillar of the State's criminal justice system and plays a unique role in contributing to the Government's community safety agenda. Our division plays a central role within the organisation in developing and influencing evidence-based correctional policies.

What you'll do

You will lead and manage a team within the Modelling Analysis and Statistics Branch which is responsible for the delivery of statistical services and expertise to support strategic policy and planning in Corrections Victoria.

Reporting to the General Manager, Reporting and Analysis, you will drive the development of a range of analysis and reports to inform executive and government decision making on the corrections system and across the justice portfolio more broadly. Your work program will include modelling projected demand for prison and community corrections, providing strategic advice on trends and drivers of demand and identifying opportunities to better target provision of programs and services. In this key role you will also be responsible for managing a range of regular reporting outputs and advising on statistical database requirements.

You will be working in an area of significant impact, with a dual focus on improving the rehabilitative outcomes of prisoners and offenders and on maintaining community safety.

Key projects

We have some exciting new projects underway, which include:

  • Examining innovative approaches to reducing reoffending
  • A range of strategy and policy work for specific cohorts such as remandees, women, prisoners and offenders with a disability, older prisoners and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

What we look for

If you are an experienced people leader, have an inquisitive mind, a head for data, strong consultation and writing skills and the ability to locate and synthesise information then you will fit right in.
