The Home Office is one of the original great Departments of State and has one of the most challenging jobs in Government.  Its mission is fundamentally important: to keep Britain’s streets safe and its borders secure.  Each and every member of Home Office staff plays a part in making that happen.

With a budget of £13.6bn and a staffing profile of over 35,000, the Home Office leads on immigration and passports, drugs policy, crime policy, counter-extremism and counter-terrorism and works to ensure visible, responsive and accountable policing in the UK. These issues are at the heart of the Government’s agenda.  The challenges the Department faces are significant and can change rapidly in the global environment in which we operate.  This makes it one of the most exciting and stimulating Departments to work in.

The key priority for the Director for Organisational Effectiveness is to deliver organisational change within the Home Office, ultimately to help it transform into a listening and learning organisation. Success will include inspiring a professional and trusted community across the department to drive, facilitate and embed cross-Departmental action to transform the Home Office into one that listens, learns and seeks to continuously improve.

The role has direct responsibility for leading organisational development, leadership, health and safety, engagement and inclusion strategies that underpin Home Office objectives. This will include:

Leading a Departmental Culture Change approach, drawing on existing insights (Our Home Office, people survey, audits, insights from SCS, Windrush and other lessons learned reports to diagnose the ‘as-is’ and what will need to change to get there and design suitable strategies to make that happen including delivering or enabling Organisation Design and Development interventions; developing a community culture change approach and establishing a clear and compelling employee value proposition that inspires, empowers and motivates current and future employees through Departmental talent and recruitment processes.
