Extended 2020-23 strategy and 2023-24 Business Plan published

8 June 2023

Following the arrival of our new Chair, Helen Pitcher, in January 2023, the Commission Board agreed that the overall aims within the current JAC 2020-23 strategy remain valid and relevant and that the 2020-23 strategy should be extended for a further year in order to enable development of a new three-year Strategy for 2024-27. This development will be undertaken in consultation with key partners and stakeholders.

The extended 2020-23 Strategy incorporates a 2023-24 Business Plan which was approved by the Board in April and outlines key priority activities for the JAC over the coming financial year. You can see the extended 2020-24 strategy here.

Our vision is to attract and support the widest range of high calibre candidates for judicial office, and to make independent selections on merit through fair and open competition.

In support of our vision, the 2023-24 Business Plan sets out how we are going to continue to pursue our four strategic aims over the next year:

  1. Ensure we are a centre of excellence in selection, applying best practice to identify talented candidates with skills and abilities across the entirety of judicial roles
  2. Attract well-evidenced applications from the widest range of high calibre candidates, supporting greater judicial diversity
  3. Ensure the JAC is widely recognised as the trusted expert body on independent, merit-based appointment to the judiciary
  4. Support delivery of Commission aims in line with our values, including by way of a new digital application system and tools.
