I joined the Home Office because I wanted a role in public service, and here I am over 20 years later. I’ve had lots of opportunities, interesting roles and career progression along the way.
Every day I work together with colleagues based in towns and cities around the UK, from my home, my local office and offices in other regions. We work closely on a range of activities, despite the geographical distance. We provide briefings, internal guidance and external correspondence for Members of Parliaments, Ministers and other Immigration Enforcement colleagues.
One of the things I really appreciate about working for the Home Office is the department’s respect for diversity and inclusion, which means a lot to me.
Flexible working helps me keep a work-life balance. I’m an early riser, so I start work at 7am. Being able to work from home for part of the week means I can take breaks to drop my kids off and collect them from school.
Working with dedicated people to help provide a valuable service to the public never ceases to be enjoyable. Come and join the Home Office if you want varied opportunities, to work with colleagues from different walks of life and the opportunity to work on issues that really matter to the public.
