Case Review Manager – (ref CRM20/19)

£36,267 pa

Permanent and Fixed Term (2 years) roles available

Central Birmingham

The CCRC deals with complex matters across a broad range of cases and has dealt with some of the most serious miscarriages of justice of the last fifty years.

Sometimes, though rarely, something goes wrong in a criminal case so fundamentally that it leads to a wrongful conviction – there might not have been a crime at all, the wrong person might have been convicted, or the process might have failed so significantly that the conviction is unsafe.

  • Can you spot the crucial flaw in the case that everyone else missed at trial and on appeal?
  • Do you have what’s needed to put right what has gone wrong?
  • Are you sharp-minded, impartial, resourceful, inquisitive, tenacious and good at analysing evidence with a cool head?
  • Are you articulate – able to communicate highly complex information, both orally and in writing, adapting to your audience effectively?
  • Can you manage a varied portfolio of challenging cases with a positive, problem solving, attitude?

If so, we would be delighted to hear from you about our Case Review Manager vacancies. The role is thoroughly interesting and rewarding, allowing you a 360o vantage point on a range of criminal cases.
