The role

This job is suitable as a full time post.

The role is business critical and has been exempted from the civil service recruitment freeze.

As a ROSM you will be responsible for the FCO’s security strategy and policy at your Post and other regional Posts. You will be expected to achieve this through visits and regular contact with Posts in order to ensure the safety of staff, documents and equipment. You will ensure the safety and the physical and protective security of the Post and of the staff’s residential properties. You will provide policy advice, guidance and support on all aspects of security.

You will serve as an active member of the Post Security Committee providing briefing and orientation to all those towards whom the FCO has a duty of care on security issues, threats and mitigation. You will be responsible for ensuring that business continuity plans and other emergency drills are instituted and reviewed.

With the input from the Head of Post and Post Security Officer you will implement policy decisions from London, and Overseas Security Adviser (OSA) recommendations across your region, appropriate to the priority.

You may be required to line manage a Post Security Manager and, where applicable, manage a Locally Engaged (LE) guard force or a contract guard force both in your Post and regional Posts.

You will provide supervision, guidance and training on all aspects of physical security, e.g. vehicles, access control, VOICE (Intruder Alarm and Public Address system) and CCTV.

You will act as the first point of contact for your Post’s security queries, investigating, recording and reporting of security incidents and breaches. You will complete travel clearance applications for staff for travel to high risk areas and be responsible for the completion of ROSM visit reports for regional and home Posts.

You will also be responsible for the management of armoured vehicles, the training and testing of emergency communications (radios, SMS, tracking devices) and updating security procedures and signage at Post. You will be expected to complete security surveys of your Post, staff and properties and be involved with VIP visits, RDT deployments and special events.

A further responsibility will be the conducting of security clearances for LE staff and liaison with Personnel Security Team in Estates Security Directorate.
