Magistrates will be selected and appointed solely on merit.
Applications are welcome from anyone who meets the eligibility criteria for appointment and who believes they have the necessary qualities. Applications are particularly welcome from members of groups currently under-represented amongst the magistracy. That includes members of Black and Minority Ethnic communities, people under the age of 50, people from non-managerial or professional occupations, and people with a disability who are able, either unassisted or with reasonable adjustments, to carry out the full range of a magistrate’s duties.
Completion of the diversity monitoring form is mandatory. This information will not be considered as part of the application which is assessed solely on merit.
Family Magistrates are asked to make themselves available to sit across all Court locations within the Family Panel Area to which they are assigned and to undertake reasonable travel. Family Courts currently sit at Basildon, Chelmsford and Colchester but may be subject to change in future.
