Wayne County Court Hiring for Numerous Open Positions
More than 50 jobs with benefits are available at Detroit’s Third Circuit Court

 Detroit, MI – 

The Third Judicial Circuit of Michigan, the largest circuit court in the state of Michigan, is hiring for multiple positions that offer candidates good pay, job growth and generous benefits.

 The Court has been hiring at a brisk pace for the past two years since the “great resignation” due in part to the COVID pandemic. Based in Detroit, the Third Judicial Circuit has now resumed full in-person operations and seeks to fill these positions to better serve its constituents.

 The Court has multiple locations in Detroit and later this year several divisions will be moving to the new Wayne County Criminal Justice Center (CJC) in Detroit according to Human Resources Director Nikki Wright.

Court employees have an important role as public servants in Wayne County’s  judicial process. The Third Judicial Circuit has nearly 60 judges in civil, criminal and family divisions.

“It’s an exciting time to join our team because there’s a lot of opportunity for growth and advancement, and we have the new CJC opening,” Wright said. “Our employees feel a sense of civic pride given they are supporting the judicial needs of Wayne County.”

Among the open jobs are:

  • Staff lawyers
  • Clinicians
  • Financial professionals
  • IT professionals
  • Administrative staff
  • And more…

Most positions offer the ability for employees to work remotely one day per week. Interested? Learn more about open positions and apply directly online at, and click on the “We’re Hiring” banner on the homepage.
