At the Home Office, our task is simple – to keep the UK safe. Doing this means working across a huge range of projects, dealing with some of the most high-profile and important issues the country faces. If you’re talented, tenacious and forward-thinking, you’ll find yourself in good company. Join us at the heart of government, take advantage of huge opportunities and help us build an unrivalled department.
You’ll join the Joint Debriefing Team (JDT), a rapidly expanding organisation that gathers intelligence to prosecute immigration criminals. We primarily focus on people smuggling and human trafficking across the EU and UK, and your work will play a significant role in protecting both ordinary citizens and the victims of organised crime.
As part of the team, you’ll take on a wide variety of responsibilities, from identifying criminals to gathering intelligence, carrying out in-depth interviews and completing witness statements. You’ll also be involved in high-priority debriefings which take place within 24 hours of an operation or deployment, so a flexible approach to your work is crucial.
You’ll need experience in law enforcement or in an investigative role. You’ll be able to gather information for research or analysis and conduct effective, in-depth interviews. As shift patterns and the locations of postings often change, you’ll need to be highly flexible and hold a UK driving licence. Strong communication skills and good IT skills are essential, and ideally you’ll have experience of immigration or police IT systems.
Whatever your role at the Home Office, we’ll support your career plans and evolve your skills with exceptional tools, training and coaching. There’s also a wealth of opportunity to move around and work across different departments. As a Civil Service employee, you’ll also be entitled to a wide range of benefits, including generous annual leave, flexible working, childcare and travel allowances, numerous staff networks and clubs, onsite facilities and a Civil Service pension.
