The challenge

The Home Office is here to make our country safer. Whether it’s fighting crime, protecting our borders or combating slavery, the Home Office is at the cutting edge of public policy and our work is some of the most rewarding in government.

Operating in a fast-evolving, global environment, we rely on the evidence and insights of expert analysts throughout the lifecycle of decision-making. Their work informs the development and delivery of policy and frontline operations in critical areas such as public safety, national security, and immigration.

The role

Joining one of our analyst professions – economics, operational research, social research or statistics and data science – you will take on a senior role within a multidisciplinary team delivering high-quality analysis and insight. You will contribute to shaping the delivery of Home Office priorities, working creatively and collaboratively with operational colleagues, stakeholders and other professional analysts. The work is varied and may include:

  • managing quantitative and qualitative research projects
  • working with frontline services (such as police forces) to collect data and publish statistics 
  • options appraisal and impact assessment, including costs and benefits, value for money of interventions, and social, economic and equality impacts
  • using large and complex data sets to model demand scenarios and provide forecasts to support critical operational decision-making on the front line
  • using data science tools and techniques to answer complex policy questions and improve operational ability
  • designing evaluation and research projects, undertaking primary research and conducting secondary analysis of data
  • managing wider stakeholder relationships with, for example, academia to enable the Home Office to stay up to date with the most recent research and evidence

About you

These roles require experience of leading a team to deliver innovative and ground-breaking analysis.  You will also have:

  • a track-record of managing analytical projects from inception to conclusion
  • the ability to work as part of a team to deliver work with impact and at pace
  • the skills to communicate technical concepts to a wide range of audiences, including senior leaders
  • readiness to balance a varied workload and work flexibly
  • a minimum of a 2:1 undergraduate degree in a discipline relevant to economics, operational research, social research, statistics or data science

Benefits

There will be significant opportunities to develop your own skills and future career within the Home Office and as part of the wider government analytical profession networks.  We offer extensive training and development and structured career progression. Other benefits include access to a valuable civil service pension and flexible working arrangements.
