An exciting opportunity to contribute to the work of the British Embassy in Berlin, which together with the Consulates in Dusseldorf and Munich make up the Germany Network. As part of the FCDO (Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office) world-wide network, the 3 missions serve as a platform for 192 diplomatic and country based colleagues. These come from both the FCDO and a range of other UK Government partners.  The Germany Network maintains and develops relations between the UK and Germany, representing British political, economic and consular interests overseas. This involves supporting inward visits by senior government representatives and other VIP visitors for which extensive ad hoc security arrangements are often necessary.  

Based in the British Embassy Berlin, the role of the Post Security Manager (PSM) is to promote a safe and secure working environment for the staff of and visitors to the Embassy. They would fulfil this role by leading the development and implementation of high standards for the management of physical and technical security, including through effective collaboration with corporate partners. Given the extent to which security touches on all functions of the British Embassy and the visibility of the role, including to the public and visitors, the PSM also has a significant impact on the Embassy’s external reputation. They also contribute a great deal via outreach and capacity-building to the Embassy’s security culture. They are a pivotal figure in developing and implementing local security policy through their support for the Embassy’s Post Security Committee (PSC).

In fulfilling the role, the PSM at the British Embassy in Berlin will be required to coordinate closely with PSM colleagues at the Consulates in Munich and Dusseldorf. This is to ensure consistent application of best practice across the Germany Network.
