PAGE 24 Wednesday March 7 2018 BAY HARBOUR Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Advertisement Live Q&A: A first from Corrections. Have you ever been interested in a new career or a specific job, but haven’t had the chance to talk to anyone about it before applying? Probably, yes. Here’s your chance to learn more about a career with Corrections. If you’re interested in an exciting and rewarding career as a Corrections Officer, you can join our Live Q&A event and have your questions answered by Corrections Officers working in New Zealand prisons. You will have the opportunity to ask your questions to the panel of working Corrections Officers and have them answered in real time. Over the last year we’ve held information evenings in cities and towns across New Zealand. Next week, for the first time you can have all of your questions answered live online from wherever you are. Our team will be on hand to share their experiences about working to help offenders change their lives and answer any questions that you and your whanau might have. Our Live Q&A event will make sure that you have the information you need to decide on a career with Corrections. Kahore tetahi o tatou, taea te mahi, nga mahi e taea o tatou katoa. Not one of us can do the work as well as all of us working together. MEET YULIA Yulia’s experience and passion for working with people has ensured her smooth transition into the role of Corrections Officer at Auckland Region Women’s Corrections Facility. “I joined Corrections at the beginning of 2017, I had previously worked in a range of roles including early childhood teacher, swimming instructor and most recently caring for older people and people living with disabilities.” “I love working with people, and was looking for a different challenge. I found the job through Seek, and researched the role on the Corrections website. I watched the videos of staff sharing their experiences, which made me realise this was something I could do. I dived in, accepted the challenge, and I’ve never looked back.” “I love what I do, and I think so many people out there may not realise just how much impact they can have building a career here.” “I will never forget the journey, and where it has taken me so far. There are a world of opportunities out there – I can’t wait to see what’s next.” Yulia McConaghan, Corrections Officer Make sure to join the Live Q&A to get Yulia’s insight on a career path with Corrections.
