The Office of Public Prosecutions (OPP) advertises current vacancies through the Careers with the Victorian Government website. Vacancies may also be advertised on other employment websites or in the media.

Employees are recruited using the principles of merit and equity to identify the applicant who best meets the requirements of the position and the OPP values. We value diversity and adhere to equal opportunity legislation. We do not discriminate against candidates based on irrelevant or protected personal characteristics.


Applications must be lodged through the Careers with the Victorian Government website.

Applicants must address the selection criteria contained in the position description for each advertised vacancy. These criteria form the basis for shortlisting and selection. Adequately and succinctly addressing these criteria will improve your chances of gaining an interview.

Your application should consist of the following:

  • reference number and title of the role you are applying for
  • covering letter
  • up-to-date Curriculum Vitae including details of two referees
  • proof of admission or eligibility for admission to practice (for solicitor roles)

  • an indication if care needs to be taken when contacting you in the workplace.

Selection process

Applicants will receive acknowledgment of their application on receipt of electronically lodged applications.

Applicants who are shortlisted for further selection will generally be contacted within seven business days of the closing date for applications.
