A career in the Foreign Service alternates between Singapore and in one of our 50 Missions around the world.

This includes analysing geopolitical developments, organising high-level visits and meetings, sharing Singapore's technical expertise with developing countries, as well as assisting overseas Singaporeans in distress.
