The first duty of the government is to keep citizens safe and the country secure. The Home Office has been at the front line of this effort since 1782. As such, we play a fundamental role in maintaining the security and economic prosperity of the UK.
The Home Office leads on immigration and passports, refugee protection, counter-terrorism, policing, fire services, and crime and drugs policy.
Digital Data and Technology (DDaT) enables the Home Office to keep the UK safe and secure. We design and build the services that help people apply for visas or passports; support policing and counter-terrorism operations; and protect the UK’s borders.
We're a diverse bunch. Some of us have worked at start-ups, others at big corporate firms. There is plenty of Civil Service experience around too. What we all have in common is that we love to learn, to challenge conventional thinking, and to continually push the boundaries, so we can deliver exceptional public services that work for everyone.
This is an exciting time to be at the Home Office. You'll get to work with fantastic people and have a major impact on some of the most critical systems and services in the UK. You’ll also enjoy the benefits we offer. We believe our people should have a good work-life balance and support flexible working, offer a great pension, and have a strong focus on helping people continue to learn and grow throughout their careers. We value diversity and provide an open, inclusive and supportive environment to help you do your best work.
