I joined the Home Office from the Department for Work and Pensions. I was interested in the role as it was compliance related, and I had experience in applying policies and procedures in this area. I have now been here just over two years.
I am a caseworker in Interventions and Sanctions Directorate, which works to remove the incentives encouraging people to enter or remain in the UK illegally. As part of my daily routine, I manage a number of different cases which can include corresponding with other departments, investing the immigration history of the subject and writing detailed reports and letters.
What I enjoy most about the job is the supportive nature of my team as well as the wide range of opportunities for learning and development, both within my area and across the wider Home Office.
There is lots of support for health and wellbeing and you can participate in many different learning and training calls on a wide range of topics. There are so many different opportunities for development and things you can get involved in that it really is a great place to work.
