In a move that promises to revolutionize the Kenyan judicial system, the Judiciary has recently announced nearly 1,000 job openings for computer-literate individuals.
These vacancies are not just about finding employment; they are about becoming a part of a transformative journey towards a more efficient and accessible justice system.
The Digital Revolution in Kenyan Courts
The Kenyan Judiciary is embarking on a significant digital transformation through the deployment of the Case Tracking System (CTS).
This advanced system is set to streamline the judicial process, making it faster and more accessible to all citizens. It has been deployed in court stations across the country, marking a monumental shift towards the digital age.
One of the most crucial aspects of this digital transformation is the digitization of active case files.
This means converting historical court records and handwritten proceedings into a digital format that can be readily used by judges and judicial officers.
To achieve this ambitious goal, the Judiciary is looking for skilled individuals to join their ranks.
The Judiciary has created three distinct job categories, each playing a vital role in the digital transformation process:
- Data Entry Agents:
- Responsibilities include receiving files, preparing physical documents for digitization, and organizing and indexing them.
- Qualifications: KCSE certificate with a minimum grade of C-, a certificate in computer studies, and preferably previous data entry experience or engagement with Ajira.
- Digitization Agents (Scanning Operators):
- The main task involves scanning all prepared documents, ensuring their quality, and saving them in a digital format.
- Qualifications: KCSE certificate with a minimum grade of C-, a certificate in computer studies, and the ability to operate a scanner. Previous experience as a scanning operator or engagement with Ajira is a plus.
- Team Leaders/Quality Assurance:
- Team leaders are responsible for overseeing the digitization process, allocating tasks, and ensuring the quality of scanned documents.
- Qualifications: KCSE certificate with a minimum grade of C-, a diploma certificate in a related field, a certificate in computer studies, and proof of leadership in a digital work setting. Previous experience as a scanning operator or engagement with Ajira is advantageous.
What’s in it for You?
Apart from the satisfaction of being part of a transformative endeavor, successful candidates will receive competitive stipends:
- Data Entry Agents: Ksh 1,500 per day.
- Digitization Agents (Scanning Operators): Ksh 1,500 per day.
- Team Leaders/Quality Assurance: Ksh 2,000 per day.
The duration of your assignment will be determined based on the caseload statistics at your assigned court station.
