The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is delighted to advertise the opportunity of Senior Crown Prosecutor (SCP) in the Serious Economic and Organised Crime Directorate.
The nature of crime is changing, and the scale and complexity of organised crime groups is growing, driven by global movements of people and threats from new technologies. The criminal justice system must adapt and evolve to meet the challenges that these changes pose. The CPS SEOCID has been created to ensure that we have the resilience, expertise and flexibility in our staff and our organisational structure to best respond to new and changing areas of complex crime.
As an SCP, you will review case files and charging decisions, providing legal advice on cases to be presented in both the magistrates and Crown Courts. You will analyse, review, prepare and present a wide range of cases at magistrates’ court and will be expected to have up-to-date knowledge of criminal offences ranging from motoring to murder. You will have a high volume of casework in respect of advice, review and advocacy, which will include some of the more challenging, serious and sensitive cases.
We commit to give our employees the ability to learn and grow, with access to the right opportunities and resources including an Individual Learning Account (ILA) to attend training courses and get the chance to shadow colleagues to gain different perspectives. We also 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.
