Court Registry Officer (Former Employee) –  Ministry of Justice - Thames District Court15 June 2017
Thames District Court is a varied career with no two days ever being the same. I worked in a small office and my colleagues were like my family.

I enjoyed working with Judges, police, probation officers, lawyers and many other people from all walks of life.

A typical day at work involves scheduling court hearings, processing urgent parenting applications, processing urgent protection orders, preparing files for Judges for Criminal or Family Court hearings, serving all types of people at the front counter - sometimes dealing with difficult customers.
Pros
Great variety of work, excellent colleagues
Cons
Not enough staff / pay for the work required
