Our locations

The Home Office is an organisation of around 40,000 staff. We have civil servants working across all four nations of the UK and overseas, and we’re a major employer in many towns and cities.

Over 40% our workforce is already based outside London and the South East, but we’re committed to further improving representation of the communities we serve and to providing more development and promotion opportunities for those outside London and the South East, and across a wider range of professions.

In May 2021, we announced our intention to expand our regional presence by at least 1,950 roles, including a quarter of our Senior Civil Service roles, by 2025. We are increasing our presence in smaller cities and large towns including Stoke-on-Trent, Peterborough, Salford, Sheffield and Solihull. We are also increasing staff numbers in metropolitan locations and sites in the devolved administrations, including Sheffield, Manchester, Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh.

We have also established a new Innovation Centre in Stoke-on-Trent, which will accommodate case-working roles and a national asylum customer communications hub. Over 5 years the Stoke hub will in total accommodate more than five hundred roles.

Where would you work if you joined us?

It depends on your role. The Home Office encourages flexible working wherever possible, including part-time working, compressed hours, remote working, job sharing and part-year working.

Where business needs allow, some roles may be suitable for a combination of office and home-based working.  This is a non-contractual arrangement where employees will be expected to spend a minimum of 60% of their working time in an office, subject to local estates capacity, by Spring 2024.  Applicants can request further information regarding how this may work in their team from the Vacancy Holder for any specific role.
