    Has anyone seen an ad for this? I've been told it's normally in March, with deadline end of the month. MoJ jobs website has nothing...

    Nope. Have you asked MoJ or CA?

    So have these applications still not opened? I can't manage to find them, and I'm not sure if it's just the search functions on the Civil Service and MoJ websites being incredibly unhelpful.

    I received this on the 15th March in response to me emailing, but clearly it hasn't happened:

    From: Civil Appeals - Administration <[email protected] v.uk>Subject: RE: Judicial AssistantsDate: 15 March 2018 at 10:31:43 GMTTo:

    Dear

    This will be released tomorrow. I have attached some details of the job below.

    The court of Appeal Civil Division is looking to recruit 25 Judicial Assistants from October 2018. Applications will be invited for a number of fixed term posts assisting Lord and Lady Justices of Appeal. During their period with the Court the judicial assistants will give invaluable help to members of the court by analysis of appeal papers and legal research clarifying issues in advance of an appeal as well as sorting out the shape and nature of appeals in less well presented cases.



    There is no fixed profile for a successful candidate but the post of judicial assistant is intended to provide entrants to the legal profession with a unique opportunity to work at close quarters with judicial members of the court. Typically a candidate will have graduated with an excellent degree (2:1 or better) and have practical experience in legal research. Experience gained in the early years of practice is valued although not essential. A judicial assistant must demonstrate high intellectual ability, incisiveness and an ability to work well under pressure. Excellent IT and written skills are also essential.



    The next recruitment campaign will commence in mid-March 2018 when the posts will be advertised as follows:



    On Civil Service Jobs website (www.civilservicejobs.service.gov.uk.)

    On the Ministry of Justice Jobs website (www.justice.gov.uk/jobs)

    In Job Centre Plus



    The period of service will cover 1st October 2018 to 31st July 2019.

    Does anyone know if pre-pupillage/TC people actually get these posts? All I've heard is about people who do them as a sabbatical after pupillage.

    Has anyone actually managed to submit an application for this? From what I can see the description asks us to upload one doc containing a CV and letter of motivation, but the online form requires two additional documents. Any idea what these are? I've emailed but not heard anything back.

    Finally got through to them on the phone (after 20 mins on hold) and they said to split the cover letter over two docs so thhat one talks about why you're interested in the role and the other about what you could bring. They realise they've messed up so will expect it to look a bit weird.

    I saw the 3 documents issue and uploaded my CV twice and the answer to the questions in the third document so not sure how well this is going to go for me.

    Does anyone know if this will be a competency based interview/if it's using the new or old framework? I did one recently where it was competency based but the questions were normal and don't want to be caught out again.Trying to fit STAR examples into stuff like tell us about yourself was a next level of awful.
 
 
 
Do you think parents should charge rent?
