Working for British Embassy Madrid

General information

Working for the British Embassy offers a unique and rewarding opportunity to grow professionally while collaborating with a talented group of individuals. As part of the team at the Embassy you will play an important role in the continued partnership between the UK and Spain.

The British Embassy and consulates in Spain offer a wide range of opportunities including, but certainly not limited to, Communications and Press, Security, Administrative, Trade & Investment, Finance, Energy, the Residence and Passport section. Please note: We can only review CVs submitted for specific jobs advertised here since we have limited resources to reply or retain unsolicited applications for employment.

Fares and hotel costs for candidates invited for interview are not paid nor reimbursed. Candidates who are not invited for interview may assume that their applications have not been selected.


The British Embassy offers on an occasional basis and depending on the section needs, the possibility of paid internship for a minimum time of one month and a maximum of one year. This is normally done through the universities not through our website.

If you are applying for an internship and you have not been contacted within the next few weeks that means you have not been finally selected. The British Embassy does not cover hotel and travel expenses for candidates invited for interviews.
