Working at MOJ Digital & Technology

Current vacancies

We are currently recruiting for a range of fantastic roles. You can see all our open vacancies on our job listings site.

About us

We design, build and support user-centred digital and technology services for the justice system: services that make a real difference to our staff, members of the public and their families who use them.

Millions of people every year interact with our services, and Digital & Technology play an important role in improving access to justice and making that experience much easier and less distressing.

We are using digital, data and technology to build capability, work smarter and more efficiently. We want to create a digitally enabled end-to-end justice system which can adapt and respond to changing needs. We also make sure our 74,000 staff have the tools and technology they need to keep tribunals, courts and prisons operating effectively.

Are you interested in helping us to make a real difference? If so we would love to hear from you.

Benefits

All of our roles offer flexible working patterns, the option to job share or work part time. We have great training and career development opportunities, excellent annual leave, plus everyone gets up to three volunteering days a year to do charity work. We also offer up to 12 months maternity leave with 6 months at full pay, shared parental leave, and career breaks of up to five years (to raise children, travel or just take some time out), among many other great benefits!

Who we're looking for

We're looking for talented, enthusiastic and passionate individuals who are excited by the challenge of designing digital public services, providing our staff with technology at least as good as they have at home.

Meet some of the team

Working at MOJ Digital & Technology will give you the chance to get involved with digital and technology projects that will change the way people interact with justice services.

Here is a brief insight into what it's like to work with us.

Alison, Lead User Researcher, London

Picture of Alison MacLeod, Lead User ReseacherI specialise in research with citizens, professionals, and partners. I’ve been at MOJ for just under 2 years, and it’s my first Civil Service role.

This is easily the most agile environment that I’ve ever worked in, and the biggest piece of learning for me personally was how to operate as part of a highly skilled team, as opposed to being an independent operator.

I can’t think of a more interesting place to be a researcher, but it can be a challenging environment. Overall, we have the privilege and the responsibility of designing end-to-end services that will affect real lives.

Adam, Front End Developer, London

I'm currently working on the MOJ Intranet. Working as part of a digital team is a really exciting place to be in government. We use the latest web technology and work in a modern digital environment.

The best things about my job include the flexible hours, learning opportunities and working with great people, on some difficult and challenging problems. It's also a rewarding feeling to be contributing to transforming the justice system with better and easier digital tools. Not to mention, we also have some pretty amazing views across Westminster.

It’s an excellent place to work and really breaks many of the traditional stereotypes associated with government.

Scott, Head of Product, London

Scott ColferHead of Product is a product leadership role, and I consider leadership to have 3 main aspects at the MOJ: improving the value of justice services; improving the performance of people; improving the broader organisation.

We’re the oldest and most mature digital team in the UK outside of GDS, using modern continuous integration based on cloud hosting and developing products using the tools and teams you’ll have seen at the best commercial organisations. We create mid-size public services which means that you can genuinely expect to own and lead the vision for a service.

The MOJ is a great place for product managers to work on stuff that matters.
