Working for the Criminal Cases Review Commission

Based in Birmingham, we are an independent non-departmental public body set up to investigate miscarriages of justice.

Our work is varied, interesting, challenging and rewarding.  We deal with complex matters across a broad range of cases and have dealt with some of the most serious miscarriages of justice of the last fifty years.

We aim to investigate cases as efficiently and effectively as possible and with thoroughness and care, to work constructively with our stakeholders and to the highest standards of quality, to treat applicants, and anyone affected by our work, with courtesy, respect and consideration, and to promote public understanding of our role.

With fewer than 100 members of staff, we have a friendly, supportive and co-operative working environment.

At all levels and across all areas of work, we employ talented people from a range of personal, professional and cultural backgrounds. This provides us with a considerable knowledge base, which is a significant asset to draw upon as we investigate cases. We believe that having a diverse workforce enhances our skills, knowledge and capabilities.

We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all job applicants irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, sex or sexual orientation.
