Fewer vacancies due to less turnover and declining job numbers
The number of people working as court registry officers in New Zealand is expected to decline slowly because courts are modernising and computers are taking over many administrative tasks.
In addition, court registry officers are staying in the job for longer, which means fewer vacancies.
According to the Census, 783 court registry officers worked in New Zealand in 2018.
