Juvenile Justice is hiring

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Department of Juvenile Justice recruiters will be hiring across Georgia. They want qualified candidates for a wide range of available corrections career opportunities; including Educators and Special Education Teachers, Registered Nurses and Physicians, Corrections and Transportation Officers, Social Workers, Probation and Parole Specialists, Security Emergency Response Teams, I-T Technicians, Food Service Providers and more.

"It takes professionals with special skills and initiative to work in juvenile corrections," said Commissioner Niles. "There's no doubt this is a demanding profession and it's not suited to just anyone. It takes a special kind of person to join our mission and these career fairs help us find the high caliber talent and capable workforce we're searching for."

The 'Hire a Georgia Veteran' initiative will also help bolster the DJJ workforce with returning service men and women who bring valuable skillsets to the workplace and frequently adapt seamlessly into juvenile correctional careers.

DJJ offers a one-time 'Military Salary Increase Incentive' for eligible job titles to current and former military service members who have served on active duty. The one-time incentive is based upon the current number of active duty years served. For eligibility, service members must have an Honorable Discharge.
