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.

For an insight into the work of the Court and our staff, please watch the video.
