Philip

"Anything I can do to address social exclusion and better connect people is a positive contribution."

As the Director of the Classification and Placement Branch within NSW Corrections, part of the Department of Justice, Philip leads and supports a state-wide team that assesses, classifies, and then places inmates in a correctional centre.

“In my role, I work with inmates convicted of serious crimes, supporting them to take a better pathway, and therefore keep themselves and others safe,” says Philip.

Phillip is particularly motivated by the opportunity to serve the people of NSW in a meaningful and positive way. “While I work with individuals in NSW that many people would rather not engage with, inmates are people too. How we treat and support people who have committed a serious crime is a true test of any society – and that is with respect,” he explains.

Working in the NSW public sector for over ten years now, Philip’s passion and values are founded on the belief that “social justice and serving the public are vitally important in making a contribution towards a fair and equitable safe society for all.”

He has held senior positions in child protection, disability support and social housing in Family and Community Services before coming to Justice in March this year.

“I was drawn to all of those roles because children, the disabled, the disadvantaged and isolated, and now offenders are often the most disconnected and marginalised people in our community. Anything I can do to address social exclusion and better connect people is a positive contribution.”

Outside of work, Philip is a family man with many interesting hobbies. Before his knee gave up, he ran the Marathon Des Sables in Morocco, which involved a six-day, 251 km trek. At the moment, he is working on refurbishing a 1960 Morris Minor car.
