Enhance the future of the Home Office

When you embark on a career with the Home Office, you’re choosing to do something unique with your life. As the government department entrusted with keeping the UK safe, we are at the forefront of key issues such as terrorism, crime and immigration. Working collaboratively with other departments to secure our borders and protect British citizens, our actions ultimately impact on the economic prosperity of the country – and that is all down to the exceptional team work of our people. Bringing together their high calibre knowledge, our 25,000 staff produce exceptional results on a daily basis – and now we’d like you to be at the heart of this work. 

Joining our Human Resources team, you will play a crucial role in developing the capabilities of our staff, unlocking their potential and securing the ongoing success of the department. This is something we’re referring to as our ‘People Agenda’, which is central to this highly desirable role. Developing a broad cross section of talent, you will therefore work with a huge variety of staff, from those who are working directly with Ministers to those who are on the frontline. Overseeing performance of individuals and building a skilled and flexible workforce to achieve excellence at all levels, you will support our vision of a consistently high-quality workplace in which resources are used efficiently and staff are encouraged to achieve their full potential. 

From managing employee relations to engaging with staff and advising on talent resourcing, you will have the confidence to implement measures in order to build and develop the team and achieve optimum results. As such, you will have significant HR experience gained in a large or complex unionised multi-site organisation, with experience of guiding your colleagues through organisational change. With outstanding communication and negotiation skills, you will be CIPD qualified and have the ability to analyse and interpret HR metrics and complex data, reporting your findings in an easily understandable format. This is a fast-paced organisation that is constantly evolving, so you will also be able to work at pace. 

We’re committed to providing our staff with an excellent work/life balance, so you can apply for this role as a full-time, part-time or job share position, or you can discuss flexible working patterns to suit your lifestyle. We will also support you with a generous benefits package and the chance to work on projects that will enhance your knowledge and propel your future prospects. Supported by an active Civil Service HR Community, you will receive all the guidance you could possibly need to self-develop your own successful career path.
