About us:

It is an innovative approach with proven success.

Participants agree to participate in a judicially supervised, therapeutically oriented, intensive and integrated drug supervision and treatment regime. 

About the role:

The Manager Drug Courts provides strategic leadership to achieve the objectives and future development of the highly successful and innovative Drug Court program across its Victorian locations. 

You will receive the support you need to develop personally and professionally and work in an environment where you matter. 

About you:

You have:

  • Experience leading high-performing multidisciplinary teams
  • Experience or understanding of solution-focused courts and therapeutic program delivery within the justice system
  • A tertiary qualification in psychology, social work, law or health, or related field and/or significant work experience in a similar field is desired.
