New Zealand Police are offering an exciting opportunity to join the Police Prosecution Service (PPS) as a Prosecutor, based in Gisborne.

Are you looking for a structured career pathway with training and development opportunities at all levels? With PPS you will gain a sound knowledge of prosecution processes including advocacy, knowledge of the Law and court practices. In addition, this role will allow you to refine and build on your transferable people skills.     

You will be part of a diverse group of Constabulary prosecutors, non-Constabulary lawyers, and support and managerial staff.  Dependent on your level of experience and knowledge at entry you will be involved in various out-of-court case management processes, such as file analysis, writing submissions, and liaising with police investigators and defence counsel. In addition, you will be involved (increasingly with seniority) with courtroom advocacy, ranging from first appearance courts through to Judge alone Trials and sentencings hearings.

Your knowledge and understanding of key New Zealand statutes, such as the Criminal Procedure Act, Bail Act, and Evidence Act, combined with your desire and motivation to present well-constructed and compelling prosecution cases, will enable you to undertake a vital role in the Criminal Justice Sector and in the operationalisation of New Zealand Police strategy. 

Ultimately, if you want to take on a challenging and rewarding role, that through your direct involvement will impact real people's lives by assisting them to be safe and feel safe, represent victims and communities, and assist New Zealand Police to move towards our mission of being the safest country, then this could be the ideal next step for you.

 

Skills - You will be able to:

  • Prepare and present (written and verbal) information in a clear and concise way
  • Manage time effectively to complete multiple files and meet deadlines
  • Analyse files for appropriateness of charge, completeness and accuracy
  • Contribute to the development and implementation of plans, projects, or initiatives
  • Identify problems early, work with colleagues at multiple levels to make sound decisions, and pursue effective solutions.
  • Work effectively in partnership with internal and external stakeholders at multiple levels.

 

Experience you will have:

  • Experience in file preparation, file analysis, and justice sector processes is desirable but not essential.
  • A sound understanding of the Criminal Procedure act and Solicitor General Prosecution Guidelines is desirable.
