The Judicial Career Progression Chart has been created by the Judicial HR team. It promotes transparency in the structure of the judiciary of England and Wales, provides a picture for anyone aspiring to become a judicial office holder, and offers a development profile for anyone who is already a judicial office holder.
The Chart has been designed to give a clear pathway of what progression through the courts and tribunals in England and Wales looks like, captures the core roles, as well as the possible progression through these posts.
If you would like to know more about the judicial selection eligibility criteria for the various judicial posts, please go to the Judicial Appointments Commission website.
The Chart is intended to provide an overview of progression through the judiciary in England and Wales. The Chart is not intended to constitute a definitive or complete picture of posts within the judiciary, neither does it constitute professional advice in any specific situation.
The Chart is subject to change.
