Job Description (Roles and Responsibilities)
NATO is the world’s most successful military alliance, and has been at the heart of the United Kingdom’s defence for 70 years. The United Kingdom's Joint Delegation to NATO is the link between the UK Government and NATO. The Delegation’s principal roles are to promote British interests in NATO and to keep UK Ministers and government departments informed about NATO discussions. Its work is valued highly by FCO and Ministries of Defence (MOD) alike and we are now looking for a NATO Partnerships Officer.
The job holder will work in a delegation dealing with the largest range of challenges NATO has faced since the end of the Cold War, facing threats from state and non-state actors whilst adapting to modern forms of conflict. Working within the Political Section, the job holder will work to deliver UK objectives for NATO’s partnerships with 41 countries. They will work in collaboration with 28 other Allies, partner delegations and NATO’s International Staff, to help implement the decisions of recent NATO Summits on the future of NATO’s partnerships in Europe, the Middle East & North Africa, and around the world, representing the UK in committee discussion of these partnerships with Allies and with the partners themselves. The job holder will drive forward reform efforts to improve coherence and efficiency in NATO’s partnership agenda.
As with all jobs in the Delegation, we promote an adaptable and responsive approach, which means the job holder will need to be ready to adapt their focus to deal with changing circumstances and priorities. The job holder will be a strong team player. They can expect, for example, to assist the Delegation’s preparations for the December 2019 Leaders Meeting in London. We can ensure that it will be fast moving and enjoyable, with plenty of scope for policy development and delivery.
