We operate Embassies, High Commissions, Consulates and other offices in over 160 counties. All jobs posted on this site are recruited locally and are subject to the Terms and Conditions of Service, according to the local employment law of each country.

The British Government is an inclusive and diversity-friendly employer. We value difference, promote equality and challenge discrimination, enhancing our organisational capability. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, colour, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, veteran status or other category protected by law. We promote family-friendly flexible working opportunities, where operational and security needs allow.

To apply for open vacancies, you will need to register on our system. You can request help regarding technical and non technical issues in the Help Centre or, if you have already registered you can ask for a Password Reminder. Once you have applied you'll also be able to log-in and check your status and review any communication that has been sent to you.

To register your interest for other local staff vacancies in our overseas network that match your selection criteria (either geographical or job category) you can register for Job Alerts, at the end of Search Jobs. For more opportunities, you can also click on Talent Bank to see if any future local staff roles are listed. Once registered your interest will be held on the system for 180 days before automatic expiry.

We look forward to receiving your application and wish you every success with your application.
