THE Press and Journal is seeking an experienced COURT REPORTER to cover cases at sheriff and high courts in Aberdeen on a daily basis, and further afield when required for certain cases.

The successful candidate will also have excellent shorthand, a strong news sense and excellent writing skills, as well as the ability to build good contacts with the legal profession and a good working relationship with court officials.
