Help us build a stronger court service

The purpose of the Scottish Court Service (SCS) is supporting justice. We fulfil that purpose by providing the people, buildings and services needed to support the judiciary, the courts and the Office of the Public Guardian.

We employ over 1,500 people throughout Scotland from Lerwick in the North to Stranraer in the South. Our staff have the opportunity to take part in a range of development programmes and opportunities for career progression are excellent.

Equality and Diversity

The Scottish Court Service is committed to the principle of appointment on merit. We believe a diverse workforce, appointed on merit through a fair and transparent process, greatly enhances effectiveness and performance by better reflecting the aspirations, experiences and needs of the people we serve.

The Scottish Court Service therefore promotes and supports efforts to get the best candidates drawn from a strong and diverse field.

Complaints procedure

The Scottish Court Service's recruitment processes, policies, systems and procedures are audited annually by the Civil Service Commission. This audit assesses our compliance with Section10 of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 which requires selection for appointment to the Civil Service to be on merit on the basis of fair and open competition.

If you wish to raise a complaint you should in the first instance address this with the Scottish Court Service using our complaints procedure.

If you are not satisfied with our response you may bring your complaint to the attention of the Commission. Details of how to bring a complaint to the Civil Service Commission can be found on their website
