Are you interested in fighting serious economic crime?
 
The Serious Fraud Office is looking for a qualified barrister or solicitor with experience of complex criminal casework. You will join the Strategy and Policy Division which is responsible for strategic engagement both domestically and internationally as well as leading on cross-Government liaison on legal and policy matters that affect the SFO. The work you do will help deliver the SFO’s strategy on tackling serious or organised crime and bribery and corruption.
 
We are looking for a driven, enthusiastic individual to represent the SFO in the UK and internationally, a proficient communicator who can build strong working relationships and provide clear, robust legal advice to the Director and senior managers on a wide range of complex policy matters.
 
You may be currently working in the public sector or you may be working in private practice and be ready for a change. Along with the satisfaction of contributing to strategic government policy in the fight against serious financial crime, our staff enjoy a healthy work-life balance and a range of benefits including enrolment in the civil service pension scheme and generous annual, maternity and paternity leave provision.

 What we do
 
The SFO is a specialist prosecuting authority tackling the top level of serious or complex fraud, bribery and corruption. We take on a small number of large economic crime cases.
 
We are part of the UK criminal justice system covering England, Wales and Northern Ireland, but not Scotland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.
 
We are unusual in the UK in that we both investigate and prosecute our cases. We were set up this way because these kinds of cases are complicated and lawyers and investigators need to work together from the beginning.
