MERRILL LEGAL SOLUTIONS
VERBATIM COURT RECORDER – CATTERICK GARRISON
Merrill Legal Solutions are the world’s leading provider of court reporting, legal recording and transcription services. One of our many contracts is to supply a professional court recording and transcription service to all three branches of The Armed Forces working to our lead client, the Military Court Service.
We are recruiting for a Verbatim Court Recorder (VCR) local to Catterick Garrison to digitally record several different types of legal hearings, such as Courts Martial, Plea and Case Management Hearings and Preliminary Hearings at the Military Court Centre in addition to other hearings.
VCRs attend hearings with the primary aim of ensuring that a secure and reliable record of proceedings is made using dedicated issued digital recording equipment. The VCR will operate and monitor the equipment throughout proceedings to ensure that a constant and clear recording is being made.
During proceedings the VCR will be provided with a laptop computer in order to maintain a running “log” to ensure that the quality of transcription is maintained; for example the timings of key events, speaker identification and spelling of key words/names are noted. Digital files will then be formatted, archived and transmitted daily to our Head Office in the United Kingdom for completion by an available transcriber at the conclusion of each day’s proceedings.
Historically, all court recorders are employed throughout on a self-employed basis. This will be a very busy position for the right candidate. Once trained and competent the individual would work very much alone whilst in court or in hearings, although there will be the benefit of having the dedicated advice and assistance of the Senior Verbatim Court Recorder/Team Leader based in the United Kingdom, plus the back-up of our highly professional technical and administrative teams based at our Head Office in London.
Training and Equipment
Full training in digital recording, logging and submission of files to Head Office and courtroom and other hearing room procedures will be provided in situ at Colchester by our Senior Verbatim Court Recorder/Trainer. Laptop computers and all necessary IT equipment will be supplied by the company for the use of the successful candidate.
£60.00 per sitting day; motor mileage allowance; refund of any legitimate out-of-pocket expenses.
Variable but not usually more than 7 hours a day.
Core Competencies Required
· A professional Service ethic with a high degree of flexibility and reliability.
· Professional and smart appearance with a calm manner in official surroundings.
· Ability to work and converse with senior military and MoD civilian staff, Judges, Barristers, solicitors, et cetera.
· Although no specific technical experience is required, candidates should be comfortable and competent with computers and IT generally.
· A Level English (or equivalent).
· Ability to work unsupervised.
· Typing skills – competent with Windows Word, Spreadsheets, et cetera.
· Own car required.
Qualifications and Experience
None applicable, although experience of the military disciplinary system would be a distinct advantage.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SERVICE VOTERS
Earlier this year, as part of the move to Individual Electoral Registration (IER), a new system of online registration was introduced. This means that if you're based in the UK and unlikely to change address or be posted overseas in the next few months, you can register to vote online at
There's also an option to register as a 'Service Voter'. This allows you to be registered for five years at a fixed address in England, Scotland or Wales even if you move around. This is particularly handy if you are already based overseas or think that you may be posted abroad in the next few months. If you're part of a Service family - your husband, wife or civil partner can also register as a 'Service Voter'.
