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.

 

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.

Kellie M

I'm a Service Designer working on our correspondence tool so members of the public can get in touch with the Ministry of Justice.

I'm passionate about our work as I really feel we are improving the services which MOJ provides. Some of these services are used when someone is already in a difficult or stressful situation, therefore we want to avoid adding to their stress with a confusing or complex service!

What I love most about working at MOJ is how much the design process is dedicated to speaking with users and collecting what their needs are, and also regularly testing our solutions with real users to ensure that what goes out to the public will be a service that really works.

Emily Hall- Strutt

I'm the Head of Communications & Engagement for MOJ Digital & Technology. I lead on ensuring the whole team is informed, supported and happy. I'm also Diversity & Inclusion Champion, organising initiatives to make our team more representative of the UK public and ensure everyone is welcome.

I joined the team in 2015 as a Business Analyst as part of the Fast Stream graduate scheme and was immediately impressed by my colleagues' talent, passion and drive to improve government services. I soon applied to join the team permanently and before taking on my current role I was a Delivery Manager for just over a year, coaching teams of developers, designers and user researchers to continuously improve their ways of working and deliver online services for users of the justice system.

I love being part of a team that makes a real difference for all users of the justice system. I look forward to coming into work every day and I feel honoured to work in a supportive environment where I’m encouraged to experiment, learn and grow!

Julia Fulukiya

I am a strategy and policy advisor in MoJ Digital and Technology. My team has a wide range of strategy and policy portfolios so, for example, although we are currently focusing on developing our digital and technology strategy and promoting better data sharing practices across the domestic justice system, I also also contribute to the EU e-justice area of work.

It’s a busy role but I get a buzz from collaborating with colleagues across government, a fast changing environment and the feeling that my work is adding real value to the effectiveness of the justice system.

I'm a front end developer currently working on the Intranet project. 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.

Kylie Havelock

Kylie MulhollandI’m the Product Manager on the Prison Visit Booking service; one of the first government exemplars that handles over 1.5m transactions per year.

Product Managers are the user’s champion. I identify user groups, find out what their needs are (often working with a User Researcher) and write these down as user stories. Using keen judgement and experience of user behaviour across different platforms, I translate the user stories into actual product functionality.

I work with the business to define the product vision. I am responsible for communicating with internal and external stakeholders and am techy enough to work well with developers and testers alike.

Product Management is a long term role that exists throughout the end-to-end product lifecycle. I love working with such a diverse, multi-disciplinary team at MOJ that’s full of passionate, user-centred people who care deeply about designing services right across the Justice system.
