2019 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Graduate Internship Scheme

Deadline: March 11, 2019.

The UK’s relationship with the rest of the world has rarely been so complex – or so interesting. Across the globe, the UK faces both challenges and opportunities. The FCO has teams working on everything from crisis in Syria, to helping British nationals in distress overseas, to creating new opportunities for British business, particularly in the fast growing economies, as well as managing a global network of posts overseas.

This is a unique opportunity to be right at the heart of the FCO’s work and to understand what it takes to run an effective global organisation. You will participate fully in the work of the FCO department into which you are placed and have an opportunity to influence how policy is made and delivered.
