DFID is relocating its Overseas Territories Department (OTD) to its other Headquarter site in East Kilbride, Scotland.

DFID is relocating its Overseas Territories Department (OTD) to its other Headquarter site in East Kilbride, Scotland.  Jobs in policy, international and regional divisions will be relocating from London to Abercrombie House.  OTD is part of this move. The growth of Abercrombie House is one way in which DFID is seeking to achieve greater efficiency across its operations.

To help ensure minimal disruption to our programmes to the overseas territories, we will be adopting a phased approach to the move. The three distinct milestones for the relocation of teams are as follows:

  • Caribbean Team - September 2010
  • Southern Oceans Team - January 2011
  • Advisory Staff - between September 2010 - March 2011

Please be assured that DFID remains committed to meeting its obligations for the Overseas Territories.
