Salaried and Fee paid Employment Judge of the Employment Tribunals (England & Wales) Application seminar
The Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC) will be launching two selection exercises in March 2023.
The first exercise will aim to recruit 50 fee-paid Employment Judges in England and Wales.
The second exercise will aim to recruit 50 full time equivalent salaried Employment Judges in England and Wales.
An online seminar will take place via Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 15 February at 5pm -6pm for those interested in applying for appointment as either a salaried or fee-paid Employment Judge of the Employment Tribunals (England & Wales). The seminar aims to help applicants be better prepared to make an application and to receive up to date guidance and advice on the JAC’s selection process. You will hear from Judicial Office holders and a representative from the JAC.
This seminar is organised on behalf of the Judicial Diversity Committee to assist implementation of the Judicial Diversity and Inclusion Strategy.
Who should attend?
For those wishing to apply for the fee paid position:
5 years’ legal post qualification experience is needed.
For those wishing to apply for the salaried position:
Previous judicial experience is required, sitting as a judge in a salaried or fee-paid capacity, or a similar role such as the chair of an equivalent body for which a legal qualification is required.
An equivalent body is one of a quasi-judicial nature for which the powers and procedures should resemble those of a court of law and involve highly complex matters, requiring its members objectively to determine the facts and draw conclusions to reach a reasoned decision. Such decisions could result in the imposition of a penalty, and they are likely to affect the legal rights, duties, or privileges of specific parties. Examples could include, but are not restricted:
• Disciplinary tribunals and conduct hearings for professional standards bodies
• Parole Board
• Chair of a statutory inquiry
Candidates for posts in Wales need to have an understanding, or the ability to acquire the understanding, of the administration of justice in Wales, including legislation applicable to Wales and Welsh devolution arrangements.
Any appointment from this competition to the Wales region will require the successful candidate to be able to conduct hearings in the Welsh language
