About FCO

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) is the government department responsible for promoting British interests overseas and supporting British citizens and business around the globe.

The FCO works to promote Britain's enlightened national interest in a changing world. This is achieved with 14,400 staff based in the UK and overseas in a network covering over 170 countries.  Around one-third of our workforce is made up of British nationals with two-thirds employed locally by our embassies and posts.

We celebrate diversity and recruit our staff from a broad range of backgrounds so that we benefit from fresh experiences and perspectives.
The FCO’s purpose is to pursue an active and activist foreign policy, working with other countries and strengthening the rules-based system in support of our values to:

Keep Britain safe

We tackle new threats effectively and at source. By acting beyond our borders, we are better able to defeat the terrorism that threatens our homeland, prevent nuclear proliferation, and prevent the harm to the British people and our economy caused by conflict.

Make Britain prosperous

We promote growth and jobs at home by pursuing export and investment opportunities abroad, especially with the powers that will shape the world economy in the 21st century.

Support British nationals overseas

Our trained, expert staff has the local knowledge that British nationals can call upon in times of distress. The work that often grabs the headlines is our crisis response. But much of the work of the FCO is assisting with individual tragedies out of the glare of media attention. We help British nationals keep themselves safe and focus our assistance on the most vulnerable in the greatest distress.
