The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is delighted to advertise the opportunity of Senior Crown Prosecutor in the International Justice and Organised Crime division – Extradition Unit.
With crime increasingly having a global dimension, the CPS Extradition Unit plays a vital role in ensuring that those accused or convicted of crimes in other jurisdictions are surrendered to stand trial or serve their sentence. The CPS Extradition Unit represents foreign authorities seeking the return of ‘requested persons’ in extradition cases. The Unit provides high quality advice to foreign authorities on the content and validity of requests and represents foreign authorities in extradition proceedings at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and before the High Court.
As a Senior Crown Prosecutor (SCP) within the unit, you will need to demonstrate high levels of communication and analytical skills. You will also be expected to maintain and promote co-operation with a wide range of individuals from domestic and international agencies. The role demands a lawyer who can establish credibility and earn the trust of others by the depth of their knowledge and expertise.
