The Constitution of Kenya 2010 inter alia mandates the Judiciary to dispense Justice without undue delay. In order for the Judiciary to be responsive to this constitutional requirement, it is imperative that the Judiciary decentralizes most of its administrative and governance functions to the Regions, Counties and eventually to the Court Stations. 

 

The decentralization of these functions will ensure reduction of bureaucracy and the turnaround time for decisions and actions within the Judiciary.


The Judiciary now seeks to recruit from among its ranks top calibre employees in the Human Resource, Administration, Finance, and Information Technology functions. 

 

We seek staff with appropriate competencies and experience to lead the decentralization of these functions and the global transformation as guided in the Judiciary Transformation Framework (JTF) at regional levels.


The Judiciary also seeks to recruit competent and experienced staff at the Headquarters to lead the ambitious ICT strategy being rolled out.


For the purpose of administrative decentralization the Judiciary has divided the country into 17 Regions each Region being made up of several counties and each County in turn made up of several Court Stations.


We seek to recruit:-
