The work of District Judges involves a wide spectrum of civil and family law cases such as claims for damages and injunctions, possession proceedings against mortgage borrowers and property tenants, divorces, child proceedings, domestic violence injunctions and insolvency proceedings.
District Judges deal with most of the cases in the county courts. They are assigned on appointment to a particular circuit and may sit at any of the county courts or district registries on that circuit. A district registry is part of the High Court situated in various districts of England and Wales, dealing with High Court family and civil business. District registries are often co-located at county courts, when the District Judges sitting there will case-manage High Court cases.
The salary is £110,335 a year. In addition, post-holders in London receive a £2,000 salary lead and £2,000 London allowance.
Salaried part-time work may be available for some posts subject to it having no material adverse impact on the business needs of the courts or the services to users. The availability of salaried part-time work will be agreed locally by the senior judiciary and HMCTS, subject to business need at the time of appointment. Where salaried part-time work is available, it can only be accommodated by working full weeks and in block periods of at least 6 weeks.
