Did you know the start of the year is one of the best times to find a new job? If you're looking for a career change and have experience or interest in the criminal justice system, consider applying to work at the Maricopa County Attorney's Office. Currently, our office is accepting applications for 12 different positions, including attorneys, prosecutors, advocates, and much more.
When people think about the County Attorney's Office, they may think it is solely made up of prosecutors and that our only mission is to prosecute crimes. While prosecution is a big part of what we do, it's only one of the many responsibilities our office oversees. In addition to prosecution, our employees keep track of crime data and trends, collaborate with law enforcement on investigations, support victims of crime, assist with uncontested adoptions, and so much more.
County Attorney employees may have different interests when it comes to their work, but they all have one interest in common: the desire to give back. From helping victims receive support to developing diversion programs or creating courtroom exhibits, each employee has a role in helping make a difference in our communities.
Working at MCAO, you will not only find the work to be rewarding, but you will also find opportunities to learn new skills and gain invaluable experience. As the fourth largest prosecutorial agency in the country, the County Attorney's Office is at the forefront of the criminal justice system. It constantly rethinks what it means to prosecute crime in an ever-changing environment. As a result, your work here will be complex, challenging, and at times groundbreaking. In addition to experience, employees have access to career development resources, including training and mentorship opportunities, supportive supervisory staff, and employee resource groups.
The work this office is responsible for can be a lot to manage. That's why our office values work-life balance and provides benefits that will support and improve your quality of life outside the office. In addition to health, wellness, and retirement benefits, the County Attorney's Office also provides flexible work schedules, a generous amount of vacation and sick leave, gym memberships, public transportation passes, and much more.
Not only is the timing great to search for new opportunities, but if you do transition into a new position, you will be doing so at a quieter time of the year. This gives you time to learn as much as you can about your new organization and the responsibilities you're expected to manage. So, channel that new year energy and work on your resume, practice your networking, update your LinkedIn and apply for a new job.
