The WVDCR operates facilities across the state, from minimum to maximum security, from all female to all male to co-ed, from large prisons to smaller work release centers. Some of our facilities are in greater need of Correctional Officers than other facilities, but at any given time, there are vacancies for Correctional Officers at most facilities. The WVDCR typically has continuous job postings for the following types of positions:
Although it is the primary responsibility of the WVDCR to attract Correctional Officers to provide for public safety, we offer a wide range of employment opportunities, including Parole Officers (see below), food service professionals, maintenance personnel, administrative staff as well as recreation, information technology and unit management careers.
Parole Services is a department within the WV Division of Corrections. For additional details about how to apply, employment requirements for Parole Services, benefits and additional information, please see the Parole Services Employment Information page.
Vacancies in Parole Services can be posted for internal applications, public applications or both. You can review the WV Division of Personnel (DOP) website for Probation & Parole Officer openings, but it is also recommended that you complete a Job Interest Card on the DOP website to be notified when a Probation & Parole Officer position is open for public application.
