Vacancy announcement for the position of the Deputy Prosecutor(s) of the ICC.

Vacancy notice for the position of the Deputy Prosecutor(s) of the ICC in English and in French.

Central to the newly sworn-in Prosecutor Mr Karim A.A. Khan’s vision for the Office is the recruitment of two Deputy Prosecutors, as envisaged under the Rome Statute.  The Deputy Prosecutors will manage two newly established Prosecution Pillars within the Office of the Prosecutor and undertake the duties and functions set out in the attached vacancy announcement.

According to article 42, para. 4 of the Rome Statute, the Deputy Prosecutors shall be elected by secret ballot from a separate list of three candidates for each of the posts nominated by the Prosecutor, by an absolute majority of the members of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute. The Deputy Prosecutors shall hold office, on a full-time basis, for a non-renewable term of up to nine years unless a shorter term is decided by the Assembly of States Parties at the time of election. Appointments of the Deputy Prosecutor(s) are subject to availability of funds, to be considered and approved by the Assembly of States Parties.

Female candidates and those from civil law or mixed legal traditions are particularly encouraged to apply.

Attention is equally drawn to the deadline for qualified applicants: 11 August 2021 (midnight, CEST).
