For British and Australian citizens hoping to get a “foot in the door”, New Zealand’s Department of Corrections are offering some assistance to emigrate to N.Z. to become a Corrections Officer.
Applying from the UK
To apply from the UK, applicants must be currently employed in a Custodial, Police, Security or defence role and have a minimum of two years experience.
Applying from Australia
To apply from Australia, applicants must have the right to work in New Zealand but do not necessarily have to have custodial experience. We will be travelling to Australia in September and the United Kingdom in October to conduct Assessment Centres with short-listed candidates. Successful UK candidates will be supported in their application for a Work Visa but will also have to meet all health and character requirements set by Immigration NZ.
