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 endeavour since 1782. As such, the Home Office plays a fundamental role in the security and economic prosperity of the United Kingdom. Home Office is a ministerial department, supported by 28 agencies and public bodies.We offer a range of careers, from working with the public to roles supporting operational areas of the business. 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.
