“While many people have probably never considered a career in corrections, where else can you work just seven days in a fortnight while undertaking meaningful work to benefit the community?”

“Custodial correctional officers work three or four 12 hour shifts a week, which means they have plenty of time to enjoy the FNQ lifestyle. Being a CCO is a perfect way to hold down a secure, permanent, fulltime job while only working seven days or nights a fortnight.”

“This flexibility suits parents with young children, people looking for off-farm income while running a property, or people simply looking to have more time to enjoy all of the benefits of living in FNQ.

“We provide 10 weeks paid training and a six month mentoring program for new officers, and as long as you have good communication skills, you’ll find you have lots of transferable skills.”

“For those looking to relocate to FNQ, we also offer a $7000 allowance for eligible people.”
