A career in Registration

The Registration team employs 130 staff on a combination of different contract types

All Registration Officers are required to contract for work which will include weekends, particularly during the busy marriage season. This generally runs between April and October each year. We offer a combination of part and full time positions and also annualised hours contracts.

Training and development

You will receive structured and ongoing training to help you develop and enhance your skills as a Registration Officer. We seek to ensure that our officers are provided with a broad skill base which will enable them to participate in the many and varied activities of the service.


The nature of the work requires that staff can travel within a defined geographical boundary. For Registration purposes the county is divided into four regions – North Borders, Mid Hampshire, South East Hampshire and New Forest. We deliver our services from Register Office accommodation and also work in designated out-stations. These are Approved Venues (licensed by us for marriage and civil partnerships) and sometimes in peoples homes when it is necessary to provide home visits.
