Who we are and what we do
The Home Office’s mission is spilt into three areas: cut crime, reduce the harm caused by illegal immigration and prevent terrorism.
These issues are at the heart of the Government’s agenda. This means the challenges the Home Office faces are significant and can rapidly change due to the global environment in which we operate.
The Home Office is one of the most exciting and rewarding places to work. We have a tangible impact on the lives of millions of people.
We have been recognised in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women and were the first organisation to be ClearAssured in recognition of our work to recruit and retain disabled staff. We are in the top 10 of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index and have been for the past 5 years.
