Bailiff Band E

Band E

Location: Manchester County Court and Lancaster County Court (with travel throughout Cumbria & Lancashire as required) with a possible future vacancy in Cheshire & Merseyside.

Salary Range: £19,068 - £21,668

Brief Description: HMCTS is looking for dynamic individuals with great communication skills and a can-do attitude to join our Bailiff teams.  Bailiffs are responsible for the enforcement of civil and possession judgements and for the service of various legal documents, such as divorce petitions and to track and arrest individuals on committal warrants, which includes the need to attend court and transport prisoners to and from prison. Bailiffs are required to travel to homes and businesses across the local and surrounding area, assess personal goods to secure payment for outstanding warrants and obtain possession of properties, where a Judge has ordered this, as well as dealing with other administrative duties.  This is a challenging role that will require the jobholder to deal with individuals who are in a vulnerable position and to solve problems by reference to comprehensive guidelines and instructions. Whilst the nature of the role means that bailiffs spend a proportion of the day working on their own, they are part of a wider team with management support to ensure that targets and standards are met.
