We’re keen to hear from candidates with a deep understanding of the factors affecting the political, security and socio-economic environments in their geographic region of expertise.  We’re also keen to hear from technical experts in fields relevant to international security and risk management, for example aviation safety, explosive ordnance or cyber-crime specialists.
