Crown Prosecutor

Are you a lawyer looking for a change of direction in your career? The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) are looking for Crown Prosecutors 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 over 6,000 individuals who think objectively, act professionally, show the upmost respect for others and continually strive for excellence.

As a Crown Prosecutor at the CPS you will be responsible for delivering justice through the independent and effective prosecution of crime. We are looking for lawyers who want to make a real difference and provide justice for victims and witnesses. From fraud and firearms to public order and corporate manslaughter – the CPS works on all kinds of cases.

Your role as a Prosecutor means you will be making the fair – sometimes unpopular – decisions that better society and make a difference in people’s lives. Your role is at the centre of delivering justice and your work will include tasks such as advising investigations, preparing for prosecutions and presenting a wide range of cases at magistrates’ court.

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.

If you are committed to public service and are looking for a role at the very forefront of delivering justice, find out more and apply today.
