The British Embassy in Luxembourg is part of a world-wide network, representing British political, economic and consular interests overseas and is currently looking to recruit a full-time, permanent Political, Press and Events Support Officer.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a small, high-performing Embassy team at a crucial juncture in UK/EU relations. During the UK/EU Transition Period, the UK will deepen its already strong bilateral relationship with Luxembourg. A key part of this will be improving our understanding of Luxembourg’s internal political and social scene – the drivers, trends, key actors and future developments. In addition, the jobholder will support Embassy events and visits, helping ensure these run smoothly. The job would suit a motivated and dynamic individual with a strong interest in foreign policy and Luxembourg’s political scene.
Specific responsibilities are listed below. The nature of the job may change over time, depending on business need.
Events and Visits:
The nature of the job will require an amount of time attending external meetings and events in Luxembourg as well as supporting Embassy events and high-level visits, all of which may occur outside regular office hours. The Embassy operates informal flexibility in its staff hours, based around business need, to compensate.
