It is a humbling experience to deliver language lessons to diplomats from various level and background. It is also a place that open opportunity to learn from diplomats who have been working hard to serving their country.

A beautiful impressive environment to work at and learn excellent skills from some of the best in the field ...but ...
Commercial lead (Former Employee) –  London13 July 2019
Ample opportunities for development and career progress if start working FCO in young age ...going through ranks but not the best place for mid level career enteries ...it takes time to progress and sometimes so slow one may need to change path after all.
Extremtly intelligent, ambitious environment with highly capable and talented resources ...in right teams you go up and progress so well. In wrong teams ...it is boring at the very best.
Pros
Ample opportunities for development but not quickly enough to transition
Cons
Very low paid - as most civil service bodies are.
