It is desirable that applicants have a common law background and, ideally, knowledge and experience of Chancery Practice.

Candidates with judicial experience shall be more favourably considered.


A three (3) year contract extendable by mutual agreement. 

The successful candidate will be required to reside on the island of Grand Turk, and will primarily conduct criminal trials, and hear from time to time any other case that comes before the Supreme Court in its original or appellate jurisdiction.

He/she will also be expected to sit on, or chair committees within the Judiciary, if necessary.
