Provide strategic and operational support
Our Operations Advisers are part of a 24/7 team who assist frontline staff in the management of electronically monitored offenders and defendants around NZ.
You can expect to be challenged, but also to leave each shift with a sense of satisfaction that comes from making an important contribution towards keeping our community safe.
Support the wider justice system
As an operations adviser, you'll use modern GPS technology and software to make important decisions and support frontline teams to carry out their work.
Solve different challenges
Working as an Operations Adviser is a busy role with each day bringing different scenarios to work through. In your day-to day you could be responding to alerts, liaising with frontline staff, or providing advice and support to people on electronic monitoring related to the conditions of their sentence or orders.
Communicate and collaborate
Being able to build relationships and communicate with people will be central to your work – whether it’s by working with Police to coordinate a welfare check or arrest, assisting a Probation Officer in the management of a case, or problem-solving over the phone with a person on electronic monitoring facing a difficult and stressful situation.
