About Junee Correctional Centre

Junee Correctional Centre is located in Junee, New South Wales, 40 kilometres north-east of Wagga Wagga.

Junee has been continually managed by GEO on behalf of Corrective Services NSW since opening in 1993. It is New South Wales' largest regional correctional centre.

Junee’s primary role is to safely and securely house up to 853 adult male prisoners and progress their sentence plans by delivering a comprehensive range of education, vocational training, reintegration and offending behaviour programs. Together, these lower a prisoner’s risk of re-offending and increase the likelihood of successful community reintegration.

The team at Junee achieves exceptionally high levels of prisoner engagement with its responsive interventions. This includes developing strategies that encourage and enable previously-marginalised prisoner groups such as Indigenous Australians and the chronically ill to participate.

About the Opportunity

Our successful candidate will be part of the Health Services Team responsible for ensuring that Metabolic Monitoring occurs on patients who fit the criteria outlined by NSW Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health. The role will include delivering comprehensive, professional and quality nursing services within a Correctional setting. This position is responsible for performing complete physical and mental health assessment and medical history as required on each inmate entering the correctional facility.

Working the hours of Monday - Friday 8am to 4pm this position offers a "work life balance role" with no weekend or shift work.

Applicants must be prepared to undertake direct contact with Offenders, under the supervision of custodial staff, and must have current AHPRA Registration.

Junee CC Medical Clinic is accredited with the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards.

Due to the nature of this business, you will need to have the ability to operate in a correctional setting, working directly with offenders and complying with the Centre's security procedures. You will also need to obtain and maintain a satisfactory security clearance as approved by the Commissioner of Corrective Services NSW. Such clearance is unlikely to be granted if you have been convicted of a criminal offence.

Joining GEO is your chance to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of prisoners, their families and the community.

You will benefit from a competitive salary and ongoing support and professional development opportunities. You will have access to, subsidised meals, internal career opportunities and many other employee (and family) benefits.
