Embed yourself in our high-achieving analytical community.
If you are looking for an unparalleled career opportunity, then look no further than the Home Office. As a multidisciplinary team, we work in a fast-paced environment in which we tackle issues that are central to the government’s agenda. This includes immigration, border security, crime, policing and counter terrorism – but the challenges that we face continue to evolve quickly, meaning that no two days are ever the same within our department. The Home Office Analysis and Insight (HOAI) Directorate is central to this work, as we ensure intellectual rigour underpins every decision made within the department. Bringing fresh perspectives to every challenge, we work collaboratively with colleagues across the department to ensure the most effective policies are being formed, and to support the smooth functioning of the wider Home Office.
As a member of our well-respected team, you will have the scope to get involved in a wide array of interesting projects, making this a great opportunity to further your capabilities in problem structuring. You will also have the chance to develop your skills in project management and relationship-building and you may have the opportunity to line manage colleagues in the future. Learning from Senior Analysts you will be encouraged to scope and specify the needs of interesting projects, taking the lead in managing these to deliver impactful analysis. You will also support other analytical colleagues outside of your own area.
The projects that you have access to will vary hugely, so you will have the chance to further your knowledge across many fields. For example, you might build predictive analytics models to support application streaming across major casework functions, or you might be asked to work with historical data to help us determine the future location and office needs of frontline staff. Alternatively, you might be tasked with challenges connected to how we manage the migration system, or you could help the Border Force manage passenger and freight flows by developing simulation models. In our ever-changing world, the projects that we are working on are constantly evolving, so you will excel with us if you enjoy working at pace.
To make the most of this exceptional challenge, you will have experience of analysis and delivering analytical projects, and you will have the capacity to work alongside senior level colleagues within the department plus government Ministers. You will therefore need to have great influencing and verbal and written communication skills, and you will be keen to work together to deliver a high-quality service. On a practical level you will have the ability to apply operational research skills and techniques, with a focus on always achieving impact with analysis. You will also have a bachelor's degree (2:1 minimum) or a master's degree at 2:2 in a numerate subject.
In turn, you can expect a fascinating career path, with the chance to get involved in projects that are essential to the safety and security of the country. We proudly promote a highly inclusive and diverse working environment, and you will find plenty of support in achieving your long-term goals, with particular emphasis on ongoing training and development opportunities. You will also receive a generous benefits package that includes access to the civil service pension scheme, and flexible working options will ensure you are capable of meeting your lifestyle commitments. If you are ready for a challenge like no other, then we would be delighted to receive your application.
