    Default Prison Officer Recruitment

    Having just read some articles in "STUFF" newspapers regarding the shortage of Prison Officers in NZ and the need for overseas recruitment , can anyone shed some light as to why this is ?, is the salary of $36000 not a decent wage ?or are the Prisons that bad ? Cheers Jocko
    PS Why do they need so many new Prisons ?! :booby

    Hi Jocko and welcome to the forum!

    Can't answer your immediate question but a salary of NZ$36,000 is an average wage in NZ! However depending on how much capital you have behind you it would not go far in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch with regard to property purchase, but if you have enough to but a place cash or take on a small mortgage it would be OK.

    Regards

    Karl

    Default Prison officers and police

    Hiya Jocko

    You may be interested in today's Stuff.

    The Government is also wooing police and corrections officers, placing the occupations on the critical-shortages list for the first time.
