Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service

Directorate: Development Directorate

Job Title: Deputy Service Manager (Civil) - 2 posts

Location: National

Duration: Permanent

Pay Band: Senior Executive Officer

Salary: London: £41,747 - £47,591

National: £36,049 - £41,095

Background

HM Courts & Tribunal Service (HMCTS) is part of the Ministry of Justice, and is responsible for the administration of criminal, civil and family courts and tribunals in England and Wales and non-devolved tribunals in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Our aim, through our people, is to deliver access to a fair, proportionate and effective justice system.

The courts and tribunals in England and Wales have been allocated unprecedented funding of almost £1billlion. This will enable HM Courts & Tribunals Service, working in partnership with the judiciary, to create a system that is proportionate and accessible and that better meets the needs of the people it serves. This is the most ambitious reform programme of its kind anywhere in the world.

About HMCTS

Our courts and tribunals protect rights and uphold the rule of law – maintaining the order and individual liberty that all of us enjoy. Together with the judiciary, we deliver a system that is just and accessible to everyone who needs it.

Every year, we handle over 2 million criminal cases, 1.8 million civil claims, more than 150,000 family law disputes, almost 800,000 tribunal cases and we collect over £440m of fines imposed by courts every year.

We currently employ over 15,000 people to process cases, assist court users and enforce court judgments. Our court clerks, legal advisers and judicial teams support judges and magistrates, who are independent. Judges and magistrates are not employed by HMCTS.

We manage hundreds of courts and tribunals buildings, including magistrates’ and Crown courts.

We provide the public with online access to justice and develop digital solutions to improve the efficient administration of justice. Over the last year we’ve had over 35m visitors to our GOV.UK site and launched a number of online services such as divorce, probate and civil money claims.

Purpose & Responsibilities

The Development Directorate is responsible for the national business strategy, operational policy and modernisation of courts and tribunals. Its Civil Team is responsible for the national business strategy, operational policy and modernisation of the Civil jurisdiction. It is also responsible for its jurisdiction’s implementation of court fees and payments and for Help with Fees (HwF), the national cross-jurisdictional online fee remission scheme.

Two roles are being offered. Both will be responsible for identifying and leading improvement, change and problem-solving activity across a number of priority areas in the Civil Team and will be a key member of its leadership team. One post will have a specific focus on cross-jurisdictional fee and payment related projects alongside Civil jurisdiction work and will have some HEO support. The other post will concentrate on the Civil jurisdiction and will lead a small team.

Both will lead and co-ordinate change projects, identifying and monitoring dependencies and risks within the Team and wider policy landscape and ensuring a cohesive set of changes are successfully delivered, managing project documentation. They will work directly, and influence, external and internal stakeholders at peer and senior level as well as the judiciary.

They will be responsible for addressing, influencing and operationalising changes as they arise in legislative, strategic and policy requirements. This will involve reconciling different priorities and interests and persuading others. They will also manage operational change, ensuring that the business is prepared; produce, update and deliver briefing, guidance, and other communications for various audiences and purposes and analyse data for trends and issues.

They will also contribute to the successful delivery of cross-team activity such as drafting and co-ordinating Parliamentary Questions, ministerial and judicial briefing, Freedom of Information requests and operational queries from both HMCTS colleagues and members of the public, providing high-quality and timely responses.

They will be a strategic leader, providing clear direction and support to colleagues both within the wider team and HMCTS and championing change within operations.
