Working for British Embassy Manila

General information

Fair competition is at the centre of recruitment at the British Embassy Manila. This is why we do not maintain a database of potential candidates, cannot accept applications on a speculative basis and are unable to hold CVs on file to be considered for future vacancies.

Civil Services Competences and the selection process

Selection is based on the overall suitability of the candidate against the skills, qualifications and competences required in the position, as may be demonstrated by applicants through the application form and the interview. The specific requirements for each position can be found in the job description.

We recommend all applicants understand the Civil Service competences before applying for any role and in preparation for interviews.
