Leading change that matters

Becoming a leader with the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) means delivering and innovating a world-class justice system that works for everyone.

This is your chance to lead change that matters. Our senior leaders work across every aspect of justice from courts and tribunals to legal aid, criminal injuries compensation, prisons, probation and much more.

It’s not about already having experience in justice – we look for people from all backgrounds inside and outside of the Civil Service. As long as you have skills in leadership, management and strategy, you can build a rewarding, stimulating career with us.

Our roles

We offer a huge variety of departments and roles to get involved with.

From analysing research to communications, policy and digital projects that make justice more accessible, we cater to a wide range of skillsets.

And, as part of the Civil Service, you can work across our central functions, including finance, HR, operational delivery and property, or move into other governments departments such as Health and Social Care, Education and International Trade.

Diversity and Inclusion

Our departmental values – purpose, humanity, openness and together – are at the heart of our commitment to create a culture where everyone can flourish.

We also appoint diversity champions – senior civil servants who drive equality, diversity and inclusion as a core part of our business delivery.

On top of this, our staff network groups care for and support their members, offer valuable insight and constructive challenge to the department to help bring change, and celebrate everything that makes our people who they are.
