Our values

Joining the Ministry of Justice means you’ll become part of an inclusive organisation that values you and the communities we serve. It’s important to us that our workplace is one where our people feel healthy and safe, supported and able to be themselves at work.

Our strategic priorities include making our Ministry a great place to be and enabling our people to succeed.
