The Corrections Branch plays a leading role in the criminal justice system by protecting the community through offender management and control. The Branch manages community work service and supports offenders to make positive changes in their behaviour and attitudes.

Exciting opportunities exist to work as an Assistant Deputy Warden at one of three lower mainland correctional centres (Alouette Correctional Centre for Women (ACCW), Surrey Pretrial Services Centre (SPSC), or North Fraser Pretrial Centre (NFPC).

ACCW is a multi-security level centre that provides a full range of correctional services for incarcerated, adult females including persons awaiting trial, sentenced offenders and immigration detainees.

SPSC and North Fraser Pretrial Centre are both secure custody facilities that provide a full range of correctional services for incarcerated, adult males including persons awaiting trial, sentenced offenders and immigration detainees.

Adult Custody is one of four divisions of the Corrections Branch and is responsible for the care of approximately 2,400 male and female inmates throughout BC. The Division operates correctional centres with various levels of security and control for individuals awaiting trial or serving a provincial custody sentence. Adult Custody provides custodial supervision for adults sentenced to incarceration and those remanded to custody. Correctional programs address thought patterns, behaviour and lifestyles that are known to contribute to crime. It provides core programs and additional services which balance risks and needs; ensures linkage with Community Corrections based on common core programming and integrated case management; communicates with stakeholders and participates as a pro-active partner in the criminal justice system.

The management team of a correctional centre works within unique operational imperatives: risk-based supervision, proven rehabilitation programs, fiscal efficiency achieved primarily through well planned staff and shift management, compliance with legislation, policy, security and safety standards, 24 x 7 operation, and positive interactions with government, local agencies and interest groups.

The Assistant Deputy Warden (ADW) is an advocate of organizational wellness, pro-social modelling, correctional practices, and provides direct leadership, coaching and mentorship to Correctional Supervisors. The ADW reports to the Warden or Deputy Warden(s) and rotates through various positions within the centre such as; Sentence Management, Staffing, Standards, Regulations, and Programs.

We offer extensive training, growth and development opportunities; a competitive salary and benefits package; a pension plan that ranks among the best; and offer a balance between work and life commitments. We are committed to continuing to be an employer of choice and providing a professional environment where ideas work.

The position has a peace officer designation and as such is held to a higher standard of conduct, both on and off duty, by the employer, the public and the courts.

As the manager on call, the position is required to be available immediately to attend the centre on a 24-7 basis. These duties significantly restrict personal commitments and social behaviour.
