About Us

This careers portal supports the work of the Judicial Diversity Committee and the Judicial Diversity and Inclusion Strategy.

The Judicial Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, published on 5 November 2020, sets out the ambition, aims and objectives for the judiciary over the next five years. The objectives demonstrate a collective commitment within courts and tribunals to ensuring that the judiciary provides an environment in which talented individuals, whatever their personal or professional background, can thrive.  The strategy applies to all court and tribunal judges, non-legal members of tribunals and magistrates.

The Judicial Diversity Committee was set up at the end of 2013 to support the Lord Chief Justice in encouraging judicial diversity. The Chair of the Committee, Lady Justice Simler, acts as the lead judge on diversity, supporting the Lord Chief Justice in his statutory responsibilities to encourage judicial diversity. The committee consists of steering group members: the Lord Chief Justice, Lady Justice Simler (Chair), Mr Justice Jeremy Baker, Mrs Justice McGowan, Mr Justice Saini, Upper Tribunal Judge Gray, His Honour Judge Dight, His Honour Judge Inyundo, Deputy Senior District Judge (Chief Magistrate) Ikram and Employment Judge Balogun; and full committee members, Her Honour Judge Cahill, District Tribunal Judge Gill, District Judge Rich, Tribunal Judge Vasmer, Tribunal Member Lancaster and Duncan Webster JP.
