Honorary Consul to be based on Sal Island, Cape Verde


Announcement from John Marshall, British Ambassador to Cape Verde:

The British Embassy in Dakar is looking to recruit an individual for a new Honorary Consul position on Sal island (Cape Verde) to cover the UK’s consular interests on the fast-developing islands of Sal and Boa Vista.

An Honorary Consul is a volunteer who helps non-resident British Embassies to provide a more accessible and responsive service to British nationals and other nationals for whom we have consular responsibility abroad. Acting under the advice and support from the Embassy in Dakar, the new Honorary Consul will provide a valuable service to customers on Sal and Boa Vista, essentially offering information and assistance to people who get into difficulties on the islands. Amongst their official duties the successful candidate will act as a point of contact for British visitors and residents for general consular enquiries, work closely with the Cape Verdean authorities in the event of a major incident involving British Nationals, undertake hospital and prison visits, perform some notarial work and levy consular fees, answer passport queries and possibly issue Emergency Travel Documents.

Candidates should be aware of the potentially stressful nature of the role: they may have to deal with difficult situations involving distressed Britons and crises. Full training in London will be provided, and the successful candidate will also be required to attend occasional training events within the region. The Foreign Office will pay all associated costs for any training provided.

The ideal candidate will hold some standing in the local community and preferably have strong links to Britain. They will need to have a reasonable standard of English to deal with customers and emergency situations. It is also important that there is no possible conflict of interests between an Honorary Consul’s day job and the role of Honorary Consul.

Honorary Consuls are volunteers and receive no salary or fee. However, an honorarium of about £2000 Sterling will be awarded by the Ambassador in Dakar, and all expenses related to any consular work undertaken will be reimbursed fully.

If you are interested in applying, please email
Vaishali Patel ( setting out why you believe you are suitable for the position, and enclose a resume and two references. Closing date for applications is 10 February 2012. Interviews for the position will be held in Sal in late February.
