Prosecutor - UK Wide Opportunities

The Organisation

Our client is an independent body with around 6,000 employees across England and Wales, they prosecute criminal cases that have been investigated by the police and other investigative organisations. They work closely with the police, courts, the Judiciary and other partners to ensure the right person is prosecuted for the right offence, and to bring offenders to justice wherever possible.

Job Description & Responsibilities

Reporting into a Senior Prosecutor / Legal Manager, initially you'll work on the more straightforward cases and quickly progress to deal with more serious casework. On completion of the Prosecutor 5 Learning Stages, you'll advise police and other investigators (except Statutory pre- charge advice), and undertake Advocacy, review and case preparation in summary and either way matters heard in the Magistrates' court.

As a Prosecutor you will decide based on the evidence whether prosecutions should proceed or be discontinued in summary and either way matters heard in the magistrates' court as well as determine which witnesses should be used, and what evidence adduced. The role will involve deciding what charges are appropriate; and what representations to make in respect of venue in cases triable either-way, providing agreement to acceptable pleas on appropriate cases with Associate Prosecutors.

An important part of the role will be making judgements on the most effective manner in which to prosecute cases and judge appropriately how to deal with vulnerable witnesses in accordance with best practice. You'll also make decisions relating to applications for bail and whether to oppose them and whether to accept a plea to a lesser or different charge, as well as when to change a previously prepared course of action including the withdrawal of a charge or the offering of no evidence when circumstances have changed etc.

Benefits

Delivering justice is a complex pursuit with work that is sometimes emotionally challenging, which is why you'll receive a range of benefits including a fantastic pension contribution, access to employee savings including high street retailer offers and discounts, childcare vouchers and a Cycle2Work scheme.

Our client is a family friendly employer who offers smart working options and in addition to this you will also receive 25 days leave, rising to 30 days after 5 years' service. You'll also gain access to a range of learning and development activities, including through Specialised Learning and an individual learning account in addition to any central and local development opportunities and requirements.

This is a full time post. However, requests for flexible, part-time working and job share will be considered, taking into account at all times the operational needs of the Department.
