At the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) we are responsible for delivering justice through the independent and effective prosecution of crime. As the principal prosecuting authority across England and Wales the nature and diversity of cases we advise on and prosecute means our work is often challenging and complex.

Our service employs over 6,000 individuals who think objectively, act professionally, show the utmost respect for others and continually strive for excellence.

Almost half our employees are lawyers. The rest work to assist prosecutors preparing cases for court, or in other professions including operational delivery, finance, human resources, communications and digital and technology services.

At the CPS we employ more than 400 apprentices in England and Wales. They work in teams across the organisation in a variety of roles, from trainee solicitors to casework assistants to positions in HR and Finance.

The roles can last from one to six years and give apprentices the chance to develop their skills and knowledge while working alongside experts in their field.

If you are interested in joining the CPS, there’s just one question we ask you to consider. Can you deliver justice?
