County Court User Survey - Volunteer Opportunities

Published 20 November 2017 @ 10:53 AM, by MLS Career Services

The County Court User Survey is part of the Court's commitment to Court Excellence. As recommended by the International Framework for Court Excellence, the Court conducts the survey biannually (June and November) so it can establish a sound base for comparison of change in satisfaction over time. The survey also assists in identifying and addressing issues as identified by our Court Users.

We are looking for law students to assist with the running of the second survey of the year on Monday 27 November 2017.

There are approximately 8 spaces available per shift. We will be running two shifts from 8.45am - 12.30pm and 12.30pm - 4pm (possibly till 4.30pm) so 8 students in the morning and 8 in the afternoon.

The survey is run on iPads and the students will be required to ask various people in the court on this day if they would like to fill out the survey on an iPad and assist them with any questions.

The volunteers will be provided with iPads, identifying T-shirts and lunch.

Please apply as soon as possible!
