THE BC Prosecution Service (BCPS) on Wednesday announced a recruitment drive to fill new and vacant positions for Crown Counsel and professional staff in offices throughout BC.
Addressing recent recruiting challenges, the BCPS said it is looking to hire up to 40 Crown Counsel in 2023. This will include filling vacancies created by the dedication of 21 prosecutors and 21 professional staff to the new repeat violent offender coordinated response teams announced as part of the province’s Safer Communities Action Plan.
The immediate focus for Crown Counsel is on lawyers with at least six years of trial experience. Applications from qualified applicants across the country are being strongly encouraged. Flexible and teleworking arrangements within the province may be accommodated.

“This is a great opportunity for experienced court-room lawyers and professional staff to join our innovative team and make a positive impact,” said Peter Juk, Assistant Deputy Attorney General.
