Casual Hospital Guards – Otago Corrections Facility

Looking for something meaningful?

Our team at the Department of Corrections is dedicated and passionate. We are united by our goal of making a positive difference in our community by reducing reoffending and making our communities safer .

We have a duty of care to all those in our custody, many of whom are with us for years. Everyday life brings different challenges and there will be times when our prisoners require more specialist medical intervention outside of our facility, from accident and injury to serious illness and palliative care.

We seek committed individuals to undertake hospital guard duties on an “as and when required” basis – usually at short notice, day or night. Your main focus will be the close supervision and security of individual prisoners , alongside a Custodial Officer , while inside a hospital facility.

This is a critical role as it allows us the comfort of knowing the safety and security of the community is in capable hands while we focus on operational requirements back in the prison environment.

The person we are looking for will:

  • Have the ability to communicate effectively
  • Remain calm and measured in pressure situations
  • Be vigilant and security conscious, while respecting hospital protocols
  • Be able to work as a team
  • Take an objective, non-judgemental approach to prisoners, demonstrating a degree of empathy in upholding rules and regulations
Working on a casual basis, the successful applicant will possess a flexibility to be available at very short notice.

Being part of Corrections is about being part of a team, working together to ensure that prisoners are kept secure and treated fairly and consistently.

As part of our recruitment process you will be required to complete a full disclosure criminal history check, undergo a pre-employment drug test. Full induction and training will be provided.

A full driver’s licence is essential, with the ability to drive a manual vehicle. The hourly rate is $22 .25 including paid holiday earnings, with a minimum payment of 3 hours.

Please apply online at the Corrections website before the closing date of Wednesday 31 January . E-mailed applications will NOT be considered.
