HM Courts & Tribunals Service
HMCTS administers courts and tribunals in England and Wales. We are also responsible for non-devolved tribunals in Scotland and Northern Ireland. We work with an independent judiciary to provide a fair, efficient and effective justice system. We are transforming the way in which justice is delivered through our reform programme to modernise and upgrade our justice system so that it works even better for everyone. Our vision for transforming our justice system was launched in 2016 and our reform programme shows how we intend to do this.
We employ around 17,000 staff and operate from locations in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We employ over 1000 lawyers across England and Wales and offers a variety of work in the civil, criminal and family jurisdictions. We are currently recruiting lawyers who want to work in a fast paced environment, for an organisation at the forefront of the Justice System that offers great benefits. Also, have you ever wanted to be a judge? We are also recruiting volunteers with no formal qualifications to sit as magistrates in the criminal and family jurisdictions. There is no other voluntary role like this, you will have responsibility for the liberty and family life of those who appear before you. It a tremendously responsible yet rewarding voluntary role, for which full training is provided. We look forward to showcasing these fantastic opportunities at the Legal Ex event in March.
