Appeals are brought to SIAC by individuals against decisions by the Home Office to deport or exclude them from the United Kingdom, to deprive them of British citizenship, or to refuse an application for naturalisation on national security grounds. A panel of three sits to hear and determine appeals. Consisting of a Member and an Upper Tribunal Judge, it is chaired by a High Court Judge. Your ability to scrutinise and evaluate sensitive material will help ensure SIAC decisions are balanced, informed and fair. Substantive hearings usually last from 3-5 days, but can last much longer.
If you currently hold a position with strong links to the decision making of the Home Office, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Security Services or related law enforcement or military bodies, you will not be considered for appointment due to perceived bias.
Please note this is not a JAC-run selection exercise.
