Mediation is a fast growing discipline. On completion you will be able to work as a civil mediator, the range of work in this field is huge. Civil mediators undertake sessions in many different settings ranging from workplace disputes to clinical negligence.
As a provider, our bread and butter is commercial disputes such as contract issues that are either in court or will be litigated in the alternative. Our work however is extensive and covers very specialised areas such as Court of Protection mediation and the SEND mediation service we provide to Local Authorities across the UK.
As a Civil and Commercial Mediator there are many potential ways to practice. Often delegates will mediate as part of their current firm, or undertake workplace mediations between colleagues. Others will join a panel, or multiple panels and secure work that way; some will go into business as a solo practitioner and many have made very good livings from this.
As with all business earnings are based on many variables such as marketing and level of work undertaken. However there is a demand for mediation currently and there are over 10,000 independent mediation sessions carried out per year outside of contracted services.
However you choose to undertake your career in mediation, you will find it an enjoyable and rewarding career. Mediation is one of the few roles where you can go home knowing that not only have you earned a decent living, but that you have made a positive difference in parties lives.
