Job Description

Organisation: Department of Corrections

Vacancy Title: Senior Adviser – Women

Wahine – E rere ana ki te Pae Hou: Women’s Strategy 2017 – 2021

Based on international best practice and our own research we are on a pathway, taking a fresh approach to shape better futures for women involved in the Corrections system along with their children and families.

The Senior Adviser is responsible for supporting the Women and Youth team to ensure that the Department’s treatment and management of women, either resident in a prison or on a community sentence, is gender responsive.

Key accountabilities encompass leading and/or contributing to the development and design of new initiatives, policy and practice, to enable front line staff to be responsive to women and address their needs coupled with leading and/or contributing to the implementation and support of new operational design with a specific focus on gender responsive practice and trauma informed responses.

Utilising your well-developed relationship management skills you will provide advice to other staff and collaborate across government, participating in interagency consultation, national, international and working groups as required.

To this end you will demonstrate the ability to establish and maintain credible relationships underpinned with effective oral and written communication. Visio and service design skills are also desirable.

Ideally you will possess an understanding of the economic, political, social and cultural context in which Corrections operates, particularly as it relates to women and have a broad knowledge of the key issues and emerging trends for women in the criminal justice system.

Knowledge and experience with Maori cultural frameworks and Maori best practice approaches, and a strong awareness of the implications of the Treaty of Waitangi for strategic and operational policy development and the ability to develop advice which is culturally responsive, particularly to Maori women will stand you in good stead. You will be a competent facilitator of workshops and demonstrate a consultative style.

In return you will relish working in a dynamic, highly motivated team environment with the ability to drive new initiatives forward.
