Expressions of interest sought

The Serious Fraud Office is the lead law enforcement agency responsible for investigating and prosecuting serious financial crime, including bribery and corruption.

Our mahi is integral to New Zealand’s reputation for transparency, integrity, fair-mindedness and low levels of corruption.

A specialist agency that uses multi-disciplinary teams such as the SFO is considered internationally as the gold standard for responding to complex financial crime.

The Serious Fraud Office Act establishes a Prosecutors Panel to bring proceedings on behalf of the Director. The Panel is appointed by the Solicitor-General after consultation with the Director.

Expressions of Interest are now invited from counsel who wish to be appointed as members of the Panel. Appointments to the Panel will be for five years.

Criteria for appointment to the Panel include :

  • Demonstrated significant experience in criminal prosecutions
  • Proven experience in complex financial crime prosecutions
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • The ability to use technology in prosecutions
  • An awareness of the importance of te reo and tikanga Māori
  • Holding a practising certificate as a barrister or solicitor for at least seven years
  • The SFO recognises that diversity and inclusion is important to our work and we welcome expressions of interests from counsel from all backgrounds.

    Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, accompanied by a cover letter, to by 12pm on Friday 17 July 2020 .

    Further information about the mahi of the SFO can be obtained by contacting Paul O’Neil, SFO General Counsel, on 09 905 5150 or 027 508 3358.
