Brook Street are currently recruiting for a Judicial Assistant (JA) for the courts. The role is temporary, part-time adhoc and would provide useful experience for a recently qualified law graduate.
The role of JA offers those in the early years of their professional practice a ringside view of the trial process and first instance decision-making from the perspective of the judge, for the most complex, high value and often high-profile cases.
Aimed at qualified barristers and solicitors in the early stages of their legal career, applications will be invited from those able to demonstrate an outstanding intellectual ability, excellent organisational skills and the ability to manage large and complicated workloads, as well as a high level of professional integrity.
Judicial assistants in the High Court of England and Wales are assigned to judges of the High Court across the three Divisions. They assist the judges(s) to whom they are allocated, for example by carrying out research, summarising documents and providing general support for the judge(s) in the organisation of their work and hearings.
This particular role will be based in Derby but may also involve travelling to Leicester.
The pay rate starts at £10.02/hr increasing to £10.97/hr after 12 weeks.
You will be required to provide reference details for the last 3 years and pass a Standard DBS check.
If this sounds like the next step for you in the judicial system then please submit your CV in word format to the PSR Team in Nottingham.
