District Crown Prosecutor

Delivering justice is no easy task and staying objective in the most emotionally charged situations is key. An inspirational manager, you will lead a team of prosecutors, advising on escalated cases and offering expert guidance to secure as many successful prosecutions as possible. The role involves frequent prioritising and making decisions under pressure, so it’s essential you can remain calm, think clearly and multitask.

As District Crown Prosecutor, you will also contribute to strategic planning and policy making, provide best practice training for your own team or those outside it and work collaboratively with other parts of the criminal justice system and external organisations to improve conviction rates and public confidence.

The role demands a lawyer with both energy and gravitas. This, coupled with your depth of criminal practice experience, will help you make a distinct impact on the criminal justice system putting the victim at the heart of it. In return, you can expect a competitive package, every opportunity to progress and a number of directions in which to take your career.

You will have access to development opportunities enabling you to further your skills and career. You will have an Individual Learning Account (ILA) which will allow you to attend training courses of your choice; you will also be able to shadow colleagues in other roles to give you different perspectives to further develop your skills. This will allow you to progress your career and have access to promotion opportunities.

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