Job Ad (2)

This is, I accept, slightly cheeky, but it occurred to me that our readers might like to apply for the job of President of the new First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber). Salary is £138,548 (and a judicial pension).

The successful candidate will provide the “jurisdictional lead and management” for the new Chamber, and support the Senior President of Tribunals (now Sir Jeremy Sullivan). Your powers will include the right to issue Practice Directions and you’re automatically a judge of the Upper Tribunal.

You need to be a barrister or solicitor with 7 years PQE, or a Judge. Sadly, previous judicial experience seems to be a pre-requisite. There is an upper age limit of 70, with at least 5 years of service expected. 30 days holiday, plus public holidays and privilege days.

Given that you’ll be overseeing the LVT, presumably experience of herding cats would also be useful.

 

 

J is a barrister. He considers housing law to be the single greatest kind of law known to humankind and finds it very odd that so few people share this view.
