What we do
We are responsible for managing immigration in the interests of the UK's security, economic growth and social stability. The range of our work is huge and includes:
- considering applications from people who want to come to the UK to work or study;
- determining asylum applications;
- facilitating the arrival of passengers to the UK; and
- deciding applications for citizenship.
Within these areas, there is a tremendous variety of roles from operational to casework and policy, as well as support roles in finance, IT, procurement and human resources. Working for the agency is interesting and challenging, and provides an opportunity to deliver results that will make a real difference to people's lives.
