About us

Working for us

We aim to make a difference in people's lives and you could be a part of that - build your career at the Home Office.

Working for us

Working for the Home Office is interesting and varied, and gives you the chance to make a real difference in people's lives.

We work hard to 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, then you will be able to use the rapidly improving links across government to do this.

We employ people in a wide range of professions, ranging from occupational psychology, through to veterinary science. Our staff, who currently number almost 25,000, work in offices across England and Wales, including:

  • central London
  • Croydon
  • Liverpool
  • Leeds
  • Sheffield
