Litigation Lawyer

Shape the way we pursue serious and organised crime

Human traffickers, firearms and drugs dealers, cybercriminals and exploiters of children - at the NCA, we work at the cutting-edge of law enforcement, tackling those posing the most serious threat to UK life.

Now, more than ever, serious and organised criminals are finding new and more ruthless ways to prey on vulnerable people and the wider public. And, as the crime landscape continues to evolve, so do we. Our teams work creatively and collaboratively to find new and unexpected ways to stay ahead. Join them and your work will have a serious impact as you help us protect millions of people across the UK.

Your role

As a Litigation Lawyer, you’ll be at the heart of the NCA, providing advice and litigation support across the entire organisation. There are opportunities to work across financial disruptions, civil disruptions and civil litigation, which include some of the most high-profile work we offer.

You’ll advise on challenging and complex aspects of serious and organised crime, running your own caseload while you help shape our strategic direction. There are also opportunities to network with  organisations such as the National Economic Crime Centre.

Your background

You’ll be a solicitor or barrister with good post-qualification experience. Along with strong legal skills, you’ll have significant experience in complex civil litigation and running your own caseload. You should have some understanding of the role of lawyers in government.

Beyond legal experience, we’re looking for people who can see the bigger picture and drive innovation across the NCA while delivering outstanding work at pace. Being able to collaborate effectively with a wide range of people and external partners is essential.

Rewards

We take your career and development seriously and want to help you build a truly successful career with us and the wider Civil Service. So, we’ll make sure you receive the right training, guidance and coaching as well as regular performance and development reviews.

What’s more, as a Civil Service employee you’re also entitled to a large range of benefits, including generous annual leave, flexible working, a contributory pension, staff bonuses and recognition, volunteering days, childcare vouchers and other salary sacrifice options, and an employee discount scheme.
