Introduction 

The Ministry of Justice Digital and Technology team is made up of around 900 digital and technology specialists, located throughout the UK. We support the 70,000 staff working within the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) who do important, even life-changing work, with citizens and legal professionals.

Justice Digital and Technology (JD&T) is a pioneering team within the Ministry of Justice. We’ve taken the lead in a digital transformation programme which has introduced: 

  •    new technology including Office 365 and Google Docs to enable better collaborative working
  •    agile ways of responsive team working
  •    a number of successful citizen-facing online services
  •    data-driven thinking to enable more effective decisions

These successes have led to us to adopt a functional leadership model so we can better join up digital and technology services across the Justice System and become a smarter, simpler and unified department. Doing this will enable the MoJ to meet business demand and support our users with end-to-end service accountability.
