Brook Street are currently looking for an individual to work on a temporary basis as a Court Usher with the Ministry of Justice mainly based in Bodmin Law Courts, Cornwall.

You will meet members of the public and their legal representatives; prepare court / hearing rooms, and complete documentation, as well as ensuring the court runs smoothly and efficiently, making sure court users are marshalled appropriately.

You will be comfortable in dealing sensitively and professionally with people from all walks of life; many of whom may be vulnerable.
Whilst initially you will be allocated to work at Bodmin Law Courts, there will be a need for flexibility to work on an ad hoc basis at other Courthouses in Cornwall (Truro Magistrates` Court and Truro Combined Court).
This is a full time, temporary Court Usher position Band F, 37 hours per week, currently ongoing until 14/03/21 - which is subject to extension, this role requires an enhanced DBS and pays £8.72ph.
