About us

Justice Health is the business unit of the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS) responsible for the delivery of health services for persons in Victorian prisons and Youth Justice centres. In Victoria, health services to persons in custody are contracted to health service providers and Justice Health manages the relevant health service providers in line with the relevant contract agreement. Justice Health sets the policy and standards for health care in all Victorian prisons and Youth Justice centres and monitors and reviews the performance of health service providers. Justice Health is also responsible for facilitating an integrated approach to health service planning and service delivery, leading health prevention and promotion activities, and facilitating the release of health information to community health care providers, legal representatives and individuals.

Justice Health works in collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Corrections Victoria (CV), and Youth Justice (YJ) to ensure the effective transition of prisoners and young people back to the community (with particular focus on the health, mental health and AOD needs) and that mental health and alcohol and drug treatment services are provided to offenders on community based orders or parole.

  • Manage and strengthen relationships with contracted service providers and other key stakeholders, including conducting regular meetings on operational, financial and contractual issues that may emerge.
About you

To be successful you will have:
  • Demonstrated experience in negotiating and managing complex high value contracts in a health or human service context (or similar)
  • A strong mix of quantitative and qualitative skills, including planning, budgeting, performance analysis, problem solving, brief and report writing, with strong interpersonal and relationship management competencies.
