Vacancy details

The Insolvency Service is a government agency that delivers economic confidence by supporting those in financial distress, tackling financial wrongdoing and maximising returns to creditors. We are an Executive Agency of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) with headquarters in London.

The Criminal Enforcement Team investigates and prosecutes a range of cases arising from individual and corporate insolvency proceedings and associated corporate fraud. We also prosecute other matters arising from BEIS’ regulatory functions, such as Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate and Companies House. The Criminal Enforcement Team plays a vital role in the wider enforcement landscape with regards to tackling economic crime.

The offences we deal with range from fraudulent removal of assets and failure to comply with requirements under the insolvency regimes to complex fraudulent trading matters. We also provide a range of operational advice on statutory investigations and those under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 and provide advice on the drafting of new criminal offences and enforcement strategies. The diet of casework is wide from the most simple to complex and challenging fraud cases, and we vigorously pursue confiscation in appropriate cases.

We are looking for experienced prosecutors who will be able to deal with the full range of cases and provide operational advice across a range of criminal justice and related areas.


For further information about the post and application enquiries, please contact the GLS Recruitment Team or telephone 0845 3000 793 or 0117 923 4417.
