Home Office

Home Office

The Home Office is one of the original great Departments of State and has one of the most challenging jobs in government. It's mission is fundamentally important: to keep Britain’s streets safe and its borders secure. Each and every member of Home Office staff plays a part in making that happen.

The Home Office leads on immigration and passports, drugs policy, crime policy, counter-extremism and counter-terrorism and works to ensure visible, responsive and accountable policing in the UK. These issues are at the heart of the Government’s agenda. The challenges the Department faces are significant and can change rapidly in the global environment in which we operate. This makes it one of the most exciting and stimulating Departments to work in.

We give our staff the opportunity to use their skills and talents to build a rewarding career. Throughout your career here you will never stop learning, and if you want to broaden your experience even further, you can use the rapidly improving links across government to do this.

The Home Office includes:

  • Crime, Policing and Fire Group, which works through the police, fire and rescue services and other partners to keep citizens safe, cut crime, protect the vulnerable and reform police, fire and rescue services to improve their efficiency and effectiveness;
  • Office for Security and Counter Terrorism, which works with other departments and agencies to ensure an effective and coordinated response to the threat of terrorism and organised crime;
  • Border, Immigration and Citizenship Policy and Strategy Group which delivers our overall policy approach to tackling migration and border issues;
  • Border Force, is responsible for securing the UK border and controlling migration at 138 ports and airports across the UK and overseas;
  • A high volume UK Visas and Immigration Command that makes high-quality decisions about who comes here, with a culture of customer satisfaction for businessmen and visitors who want to come here legally;
  • An Immigration Enforcement Command that gets tough on those who break our immigration laws;
  • Her Majesty’s Passport Office is responsible for issuing UK passports and for overseeing the system of civil registration in England and Wales;
  • A small strategic centre, which advises the Home Office board on strategy and direction, as well as the allocation of resources;
  • Professional services - including legal advice, human resources, financial and commercial, communications, programme and project management support, IT and data development, insight, analysis, performance reporting.

More about Home Office


To make the most of our talent, we need staff to achieve their full potential, working effectively with all our partners in delivering a first-rate service for our service users.

Enabling staff to make the very best of themselves at work will enhance our policy making and our working environment.

We will use our diverse backgrounds to enhance professional knowledge, bring challenge and new perspectives.

This will help us build capability and flexibility to deliver as part of a new, reformed civil service.

Organisations that embrace diverse workforces and support life and family responsibilities deliver better results, more motivated staff, increased recognition from service users, greater innovation and internal challenge leading to more justified decisions. 

Equal Opportunities for All Staff

The Home Office is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all staff. We will not discriminate on grounds of gender, gender identity, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age, those with caring responsibilities, part time workers or any other factor irrelevant to a person’s work.

We encourage a diverse workforce and aim to provide a working environment where all staff at all levels are valued and respected, and where discrimination, bullying, promotion of negative stereotyping and harassment are not tolerated.

Assessment for recruitment, selection, appraisal, training and career progression purposes is based both on the individual’s ability and suitability for the work.  We are committed to providing all staff with opportunities to maximise their skills and achieve their potential, offering flexible working arrangements wherever possible.

As a public authority the Home Office has statutory duties placed on it that require it to promote equality of opportunity and eliminate unlawful discrimination.  We expect all staff to assist the department in meeting these obligations.  All staff should have due regard for the need to promote good relations between individuals from different groups and work towards achieving equality of opportunity for all.

The Home Office has concluded that membership of any group or organisation that promotes hatred in its philosophy, aims, principles or policies based on gender, gender identity, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief is incompatible with the work and values of the Home Office.
