The Foreign and Commonwealth Office works at home and overseas to safeguard Britain’s national security, promote and build prosperity as well as support British people overseas. It does this through a skilled worldwide network of over 14,000 people.

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding individual to be the next Governor of Gibraltar.

A high profile leadership role, the Governorship is one of the most challenging and rewarding positions in public service. Representing The Queen in Gibraltar, and upholding the Constitution of Gibraltar, this role is at the heart of maintaining the relationship between the UK Government and the people and Government of Gibraltar. The Governor works with the Government of Gibraltar to represent Gibraltar interests in Whitehall, and to ensure understanding of HMG policies in Gibraltar; this will be particularly important as the UK’s future relationship with the EU takes shape.

The role calls for an excellent track record of strategic leadership and personal influence, the ability to cultivate deep and trusted relationships at a very senior level, with the communication skills and sound judgment to succeed in a complex and highly visible role.

The FCO values and promotes diversity and is committed to equality for all.
