We work with international organisations to promote UK interests and global security, including the EU, NATO, the United Nations, the UN Security Council and the Commonwealth.

The role of Regional Overseas Security Manager

It’ll be down to you to ensure that Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) security strategy and policy are in place and followed at your Post and regional posts, through regular contact and visits. This will ensure the safety of staff, documents and equipment.

You will be the first point of contact for your posts for security queries as well as being responsible for armoured vehicle management. As a Regional Overseas Security Manager you will also be expected to undertake regular travel to fragile environments. As such, you will be required to complete a Security in Fragile Environment Course (SAFE+).

As well as a GCSE in Maths and English, or an equivalent qualification, you’ll have significant experience of security management. This could be from a police, prison service, military, civil service or commercial security company background. You’ll understand threats and risks that affect the security of premises, with knowledge of how to mitigate against them. A self-starter who can deliver, you’ll use your experience of security reviews and risk assessments to read the situation and make decisions while taking risk into account.
