Position Details

Registrar of the Magistrates' Court of Victoria working in a multi-jurisdictional environment. This is an ongoing Grade 3 position situated at Latrobe Valley Law Courts, Morwell.

Registrars of the Magistrates' Court perform a wide range of administrative tasks throughout the Court's registries in Victoria. These may include in-court (bench clerk) duties, client-contact (telephone and counter) enquiries, and back-of-office administrative responsibilities.

Registrars are also required to exercise powers conferred under the Magistrates' Court Act 1989, other Acts and Rules.  These powers involve the preparation and processing of administrative and statutory documentation and the exercise of discretionary quasi-judicial and statutory powers using professional judgement in applying legislative requirements, established rules and precedents, and the Court's Practice Directions.

Registrars are required to liaise with a number of stakeholders including the judiciary, Victoria Police, Office of Public Prosecutions, legal practitioners, various court user groups as well as members of the public. It is essential that the person possesses excellent interpersonal and both verbal and written communication skills.

This role has significant technical components as well as leadership and people-management components and, therefore, requires someone who has both an advanced understanding of the Court's protocols and procedures and well developed team-leadership experience.
