Crown Advocate Opportunities

Find Your Opportunity Can you deliver justice? The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) are looking for Crown Advocates to join our dynamic workforce across England and Wales.

At the Crown Prosecution Service, we are responsible for delivering justice through the independent and effective prosecution of crime. As the principal prosecuting authority across England and Wales the nature and diversity of cases we advise on and prosecute means our work is often emotionally challenging and complex. As such we employ almost 6,000 individuals who think objectively, act professionally, show the upmost respect for others and continually strive for excellence.

The primary responsibility and function of this role is trial advocacy in the Crown Court, which will include advocacy in effective trials and non-contested hearings. The postholder will analyse, review, prepare and prosecute a wide range of cases and are expected to have up-to-date knowledge of criminal offences ranging from motoring to murder. They will advise in all magistrates’ court cases and a range of Crown Court cases.

As a Crown Advocate for the CPS you will play a key role, in the frontline of the work that we do. Advocacy is a vital function of CPS work; every advocate plays an important role and every advocate can make a difference at every hearing. Our advocates play an invaluable part in delivering justice at court; through their decision making, support to victims and witnesses, communication with the defence and assistance to Benches and Judges.

Delivering justice is a complex pursuit with work that is sometimes emotionally challenging, which is why we offer a range of benefits including flexible working, civil service pension scheme, access to employee savings including high street retailer offers and discounts and 25 days leave, rising to 30 days after 5 years’ service.
