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.

Notice: AOPC is continuing to consider applicants for our posted vacancies during the COVID-19 pandemic; however, hiring decisions will be evaluated based on the essential needs of the position. Please understand hiring decisions may be impacted or delayed. Check this page regularly for updates about job postings.
