Working for us

Working for us

Working for the Supreme Court and Judicial Court of the Privy Council (JCPC) is an extremely rewarding experience. You will join a small supportive team, playing a significant part in the upholding of law in the UK and around the world.

We are a non-ministerial government department and therefore the majority of our roles are civil servants. Although we are a small team, we have a wide range of professions from education and IT to those legally trained.

We value staff that can be adaptable to differing priorities and show a positive and willing attitude to support the Court and the Justices.

Current roles

When we have vacant positions to be filled by external recruitment we advertise them on this page, in the national press and on the Civil Service Website.


Work experience and marshalling

The sensitivity and nature of our work means we cannot offer work experience or the opportunity to marshal a Justice. As a student, you can visit the court to sit in on cases and look round our educational exhibition.
