A Foreign Service career is more than just a job. It is a way of life that offers unique opportunities and rewards.

24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Foreign Service Officers (FSOs) safeguard and advance Singapore's interests worldwide. To be effective, FSOs need to have a good grasp of world affairs and a firm understanding of Singapore's position.

As an FSO, you will be involved in the formulation, review and implementation of policy related to your assigned portfolio. You must be versatile, able to analyse issues critically, strategise and achieve outcomes. You need to be able to persuade and assert, and cultivate good interpersonal relations while keeping our interests at heart.

Our operations span across 50 Overseas Missions worldwide and postings abroad are integral to the job. Throughout your career as an FSO, you will alternate stations between Singapore (HQ) and our Overseas Missions.  You will be expected to pick up new knowledge with every rotation and will have the opportunity to work and live in diverse social and cultural environments.

Depending on your competency and inclination, you can develop along these career paths:
