Senior Advisor

Wellington - Wellington City

Do you relish the challenge of finding ways for prosecution services to be provided more effectively and efficiently?   If so, this position may appeal to you.

The Public Prosecutions Unit (PPU) was formed in response to several reviews recommending Crown Law work to increase its oversight of the cost and quality of prosecutions.  The PPU manages the Crown Solicitor network, including administering funding, conducting performance reviews and analysing information obtained from monthly and annual reports.  The PPU also works closely with prosecuting agencies and collects information through monthly and annual reports, providing advice on the structure of the prosecution function and consulting with agencies through the Public Prosecutions Advisory Board.

This is a permanent role where the ideal candidate must have good people skills, excellent oral and written communication and be able to work collaboratively in a small, but busy team environment. The role requires somebody with a high level of initiative and a strong interest in working across the justice sector to improve prosecution services.

This position is based in Wellington.

To be considered for a position at Crown Law you must have a legal right to live and work in New Zealand and are required to complete a Ministry of Justice Criminal Records Check.

All applications require a cover letter and curriculum vitae to be considered.
