I have had very good service from all at the Glasgow Office. They found me a temporary position, which I have now been in for more than a year. As a candidate, you are made to feel that nothing is a bother, which is not the case with some other organisations. They are very prompt at returning your calls and my weekly payment is never late or wrong. I do, however, speak more to Michelle. You are always very pleasant and friendly to deal with, which makes life a lot easier. Thank you Stafffinders for helping me.
Court Administration Officer Jobs
Court administrative officers organise and manage the work of courts of law. Court administrative officers do not make legal decisions but make sure the business of the court runs smoothly.
Administration officers in a court include setting dates and times of cases and informing those who need to attend, sending out the paperwork needed for a case, following up judgements - for instance, issuing orders and collecting fines. Court administration officers are responsible for allocating rooms and informing ushers so that they can direct people to the right place, briefing legal staff on developments, answering phone queries and dealing with mail. Occasionally they may have to deal with members of the public who are angry or upset.
What does an Administrative Officer do?
Court administrative officers typically work between 37-40 hours a week. There is likely to be some opportunity for part-time work to provide flexible hours. Some work in modern buildings, where offices are light and spacious. For those in historic buildings, facilities may be more cramped. The majority of the working day is spent at a desk carrying out administrative tasks.
Salaries start at around £16,000 to £21,000. Administration officers need to be well organised, good communicators, patient, tactful and polite. They need to able to work with computers and deal with numbers, be interested in people and in court proceedings and the law.
Entry requirements vary, and in Scotland no specific subjects are required. An increasing number of successful applicants have A levels/Highers or equivalent qualifications.
Efficient, experienced court administrative officers are likely to gain promotion to more senior administrative positions. They can also train to become legal executives.
