Job Openings

Thank you for your interest in employment with the Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania.

When considering employment with the Pennsylvania Courts, it is important to note that applicant screening and hiring is decentralized within the court system. The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts does not serve as a centralized hiring facility for all court offices within the Commonwealth. Each of the appellate courts and each of the local or county courts acts separately to hire those individuals needed to maintain their respective operations.
