From time to time, a criminal case ends with a miscarriage of justice – a wrongful conviction or sentence. There may have been errors at trial, or fresh evidence may have emerged. Sometimes, there are wider systemic problems which affect whole groups of cases and result in wrongful convictions. Over the last 26 years the CCRC has referred more than 800 cases for a fresh appeal.
Casework Administrators play a key role in our reviews, providing accurate and timely support to casework groups and ensuring that we have the information and material necessary to carry out our investigations.
Each Casework Administrator works on a portfolio of cases, varying in complexity and conviction type, and is responsible for providing the administrative support vital for the conduct of the review – obtaining material from public and private bodies and then ensuring that it is returned complete at the end of a review, dealing with correspondence, speaking with applicants, and updating our digital case management system.
To be a successful Casework Administrator you must be positive, highly organised and able to juggle multiple tasks while maintaining accuracy and a keen eye for detail. We need someone who can be relied upon to build relationships and solve problems. In return, we offer you a unique perspective on the criminal justice system and criminal cases.
Although our office is based in central Birmingham, Casework Administrators work from home most of the time, using the latest IT to stay connected with colleagues, and attending the office only when necessary.
We are committed to being an inclusive organisation and support diversity in the Criminal Justice System. We welcome people who will bring diversity of thought and provide constructive challenge. We encourage applications from black, Asian and ethnic minority candidates and from individuals from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
If this sounds like the organisation and the role for you, then we look forward to hearing from you.Please note - if we receive a high level of interest for this role, online testing may be required. Further details to follow.
