About us - who we are and what we do

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 are flexible, skilled, professional and diverse. We have been recognised in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women and were the first organisation to be Clear Assured, in recognition of our work to recruit and retain disabled staff. We have been in the top 10 of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index for the past 5 years.
