Job Details

The FSA is a non-ministerial department of over 1600 people. We play a critical role in protecting public health and consumers’ wider interests in food across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our vision is an important one - to deliver “food you can trust” and working towards a healthier and more sustainable food system.

Our legal team plays an essential role in enabling this work, supporting criminal and civil litigation across a range of areas so that we can effectively deliver against our broad and challenging remit.

We’re looking for a Prosecution and Litigation Lawyer to support this vital work.

Joining our talented legal team, you’ll take on an interesting and varied workload that will represent the extraordinary breadth of the FSA’s work. From criminal, civil and public law to regulatory jurisdictions, you will experience different aspects of litigation whilst making a significant impact on the safety of food for consumers.

You will provide expert advice and analysis for our investigations team, manage appeals across the First-tier Tribunal, Upper Tribunal and Magistrates’ Court, offer feedback on cases so that the FSA can be better positioned for the future, and generally seek to ensure that the FSA is successfully able to represent its interests legally at every turn.

You’ll have a background in both criminal prosecutions and public law litigation and will be able to exercise sound legal judgement in all that you do. Though you’ll be an excellent team player who is happy to share their expertise with colleagues to better support the FSA’s legal needs, you’ll be just as comfortable working autonomously on projects, playing your part as an individual in our efforts to keep food safe.

This is a fantastic opportunity to make the most of every ounce of your legal expertise, drawing on your skills in litigation, research, legal analysis and more, and doing so in a way that can make a tangible difference to the wellbeing of the nation.

If you are excited by this opportunity to be a part of our important work and can use your strong interpersonal skills to build relationships with colleagues across the organisation, apply today to join the FSA as a Prosecution and Litigation Lawyer at Prosecution and Litigation Lawyer - Civil Service Jobs - GOV.UK
