About Capita

At Capita, we support clients across a range of sectors, including local Government, central Government, education, transport, health, life and pensions, insurance and other private sector organisations. We support with expertise applied by the talent across our business in combination with technology, insight and analytics to keep our clients ahead of change, sharper than competitors and more efficient than ever – and we always need new talent to help us achieve our goals.

We are currently recruiting for interesting and exciting positions at the Home Office. The Home Office keeps the UK secure and prosperous; protects its citizens, residents and visitors and their property; and upholds rights, liberties and the rule of law. We lead on immigration and passports, drugs policy, crime and fire policy, counter-terrorism and work to ensure visible, responsive and accountable policing in the UK.

Why Join Home Office?

This role is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and innovative person to be at the forefront of change in one of the great Departments of State. We are delivering significant transformation in order to continue keeping our citizens safe and our country secure. New technology and the fast-evolving nature of the threats we face mean we must adapt, and adapt fast, and with the UK leaving the EU, the need for change is greater than ever.

About Home Office Digital

Home Office Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) designs, builds and develops services for the rest of the department and for government. Our capability is at the core of Home Office evolution. Our role is to enable transformation through improved business efficiency.

The DDaT function is at an exciting point of evolution. Since 2010, the delivery of technology services within the UK government has been radically transformed, relating to the relationship with large suppliers. Major changes were implemented to enable departments to take back control of the design, build and/or operate aspects of their key technology services wherever appropriate. In many cases, such changes enable optimised economics, greater leverage of niche suppliers with deep subject matter expertise, better understanding and management of technical risk and greater agility and responsiveness to evolving business needs.
