Reference number: 343597

Contract type: Permanent

Working pattern: Full-time, Part-time

Help us keep the nation safe by removing foreign offenders from the UK.

When you join the Home Office, you can be sure of an exceptional career opportunity in which you will have access to the type of challenges that other organisations simply cannot match. This is particularly true of the Foreign National Offender Removal Command (FNORC) who keep the population safe by deporting foreign nationals who have committed serious criminal offences. As soon as these individuals come to our attention – and regardless of whether they are currently in prison or free to mingle with the community – our team work to progress these cases as quickly as possible, so that offenders can be deported from the UK. And it is here that we need your input.

Working a minimum of 30 hours per week (as this role is open on both a full-time and part-time basis) you will see to it that we are providing a high-quality service. Leading a team of up to 10 Executive Officers, you will allocate and monitor the cases they are working on, seeing to it that each detention and deportation case is progressing as it should. This will include identifying and resolving blockages to deportations, including responding to litigation and complying with recommendations that have been made at case progression panels. Crucially, you will also made immediate, evidence-based decisions about whether cases should enter the detention estate, so you will ensure every case is handled fairly, and that the special needs and vulnerabilities of each person have been taken into consideration.

We want to ensure that those guilty of serious offences are removed from the UK at the earliest possibility within the Early Removal Scheme, so you will be encouraged to share your ideas on how we can improve our processes. You will also ensure we have an ongoing pipeline of talent by developing the skills and knowledge of your team, and you will ensure they are benefitting from a supportive working environment in which they feel able to discuss their own methods and ideas.

This is a highly varied and deeply interesting role in which you will make a tangible difference to the safety and security of the nation. You will also have the opportunity to build your own professional network, as you will work collaborate with a wide range of partners including The Police, The Crown Prosecution Service, HM Prison and Probation, and HM Courts & Tribunals Service. To be equal to the challenge, you will therefore have exceptional interpersonal skills, particularly as you will be required to brief Ministers and other senior officials. As a natural leader who can get the best out of a team, you will have good stakeholder engagement and management capabilities, so it goes without saying that you will have strong verbal and written communication skills. Comfortable working at pace in order to meet tight deadlines without ever lowering standards, it would be ideal if you have previous line management experience. A working at knowledge of immigration processes, policies and legislation would also be helpful.

If you are ready to do something unique with your career , and you would enjoy working in a team that responds quickly to emerging situations and challenges, we would be delighted to receive your application. Here, you can expect a competitive benefits package and a great deal of job satisfaction, because while the work we do is complex and often demanding, it is vital to the wellbeing of a great many people.

Closing date: Apply before 11:55 pm on Thursday 11 April 2024.
