About us

The Magistrates' Court of Victoria (MCV) is a jurisdiction within the Court Services Victoria statutory authority, and has a long history of providing justice for the people of Victoria in metropolitan and regional courts across the state. The Court determines in excess of 300,000 cases per annum at 51 venues, equating to approximately 90 per cent of all cases that come before Victorian courts each year. The Court aims to be an innovative, accessible and responsive court that provides quality services to the Victorian community.

About the role

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 quasijudicial 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.

About you

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.
