Job Title: Redeployment Officer

Her Majesty’s Court and Tribunals Service is an agency of the Ministry of Justice and provides the supporting administration for the judiciary across England and Wales. It presently delivers services to the public directly in court and tribunal buildings, remotely via business centres and through limited services via the internet. HMCTS’s ambition is to improve the services we deliver to the public directly in court and tribunal buildings, design new Courts & Tribunals Service Centres to deliver a national business and enhance our digital on-line services.

HMCTS is embarking on a period of significant change, funded by an investment of £1bn, which will see the organisation transform over the next 5 years to deliver a world class justice system.

HMCTS Reform is a once in a generation opportunity to transform the entire HM Courts and Tribunals Service, enhancing the provision of a world-class justice system, in a manner that provides an improved user experience at reduced cost to the taxpayer. This will contribute to consolidating the UK’s position at the forefront of an increasingly competitive international legal market as well as ensuring access to justice for all.

The role is within the Resourcing Team, part of the HR Directorate and offers a unique chance to play a key part in Reform and be at the forefront of leading and implementing significant change across the organisation.
