Help inform and influence British foreign policy with your expert knowledge and analytical skills. The Foreign Office’s Research Analysts are looking for experts on Asia, Counter-Terrorism and the work of international institutions and the issues they address.

This is a unique opportunity to become one of our most influential voices in your field. You’ll immerse yourself in the full range of issues affecting UK policy in your specialist subject area. Based on your deep knowledge, you’ll provide critical insight, analysis and advice to policy-making departments.

By developing close working relationships with FCO and Government policy makers, you’ll be able to directly impact UK policy. You’ll also forge close contacts with external academic bodies and think tanks. Overseeing an effective archive will be an essential part of your remit.

You will bring highly developed research and analysis skills, and (a) a post-graduate degree in the relevant subject area; or (b) a degree plus substantial subsequent experience in the field and research experience. You’ll be able to master large amounts of data quickly, drawing sound, accurate and relevant conclusions from them, allied with the ability to present arguments clearly both orally and in writing. Experience of working flexibly, in a team and using your initiative is essential.

What can you expect in return? A challenging and diverse working environment in which to develop your expertise, with regular opportunities for travel and exchanging ideas with the wider expert and policy community.
