Recruiting for Magistrates

The Staffordshire and West Mercia Advisory Committee, (Staffordshire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire)  is recruiting new magistrates from June 1st.  It is now possible for people to apply to become Family magistrates without being appointed to the Adult Bench first. Magistrates should be between the ages of 18 and 70 and need no formal qualifications as training is provided. They should  -

  • be of good character

  • have good powers of understanding and communication

  • possess some social awareness

  • show maturity and a sound temperament

  • display sound judgement

  • be both committed and reliable

During the current public health emergency, advisory committees are continuing to encourage applications and to accept and sift them as planned, (but in order to comply with social distancing and travel restrictions candidates will not be interviewed until it can be done safely).  


I would be very grateful for your help in raising people's awareness of the recruitment drive, and hope that you and your families are all well.



Best wishes,


Sue Furnival
