  • Chief Justice Martha Koome has extended the application closing date for jobs previously advertised by the Judiciary Service Commission.

    Although the commission had received a total of 60,000 applications by the closing date on October 29, 2021, Koome stated she would extend the application closure.

    In a statement dated Thursday, November 4, the Chief Justice argued that some potential clients could have been locked out after failing to access the application portal.

    "...there is a possibility that some several potential candidates were not able to access the application portal due to high traffic and congestion in our system," reads an excerpt of the statement.

    The commission resolved to extend the application window to mitigate against the challenges and give every Kenyan a fair opportunity to be considered for the positions.

    The application portal, will therefore, be re-opened on Monday, November 8, and close at 5pm on Friday, November 12.

    "Those who submitted their applications before the original end date should not re-apply."

    Kenyans have been invited to apply for the following positions; 1 Senior Public Affairs and Corporate Communications Officer (JSC Secretariat), 2 Senior Law Clerks, 6 Law Clerks, 500 Court Assistants, 30 Drivers, 1 Risk Management Officer, 1 Senior
    Architect.

    Others are; 1 Senior Civil Engineer, 1 Senior Mechanical Engineer, 1 Senior Electrical Engineer, 4 Senior Quantity Surveyors, 4 Superintendent of Works, 1 Senior Draughtsman and 10 Charge Hand in the Judiciary.

    In conclusion, the commission expressed gratitude to Kenyans for their interest in working with the Judiciary.

    "The recruitment will be undertaken in accordance with the principles and processes in the Constitution and the Judicial Service Act," Koome promised.
