Locally Employed Staff

These positions are all hired in Iraq though the Human Resources Office. The Embassy's policy is to post all such vacancies on the Embassy website to ensure the widest distribution possible. Each announcement provides a description of the position, the required qualifications, the closing date for applications and all application procedures. All locally hired positions require that the applicant already be a permanent resident of Iraq who is legally entitled to work.

Applications (DS 174-Universal Application for Employment form) and instructions for jobs with the Embassy may be downloaded and printed from the Embassy website.

The Embassy accepts applications that are submitted on the Embassy’s official employment application form or in the form. Completed applications may be sent to HR mailbox  Letters of recommendation, awards certificate, transcripts and the like may be attached to the official application form. Please do not submit original letters of recommendation, transcripts, etc., as no documents shall be returned once they are submitted to the Human Resources Office.

Please note that applicants must submit a new application package for each advertised vacancy. This is extremely important since advertised positions contain different requirements that the applicant must specifically address. The Embassy is not allowed to keep a “current applications” file (a file of applications submitted by candidates who were not selected for previous positions) that may be “activated” for future vacancies.

Once all applications are received, they are rank-ordered according to the applicant's qualifications. The Human Resources Office conducts the testing of skills to include language skills, translation skills, typing and other any skills that may be specific to the position and required as a minimum qualification requirement of the position. The employing office then conducts interviews of the most qualified applicants in conjunction with the Human Resources Office, and selects a candidate for the position. All applicants are notified in writing as to the final status of their application.

While the Embassy encourages and accept applications from all eligible candidates who possess Iraq citizenship, the Embassy interviews and hires only the most highly qualified candidates. We ask, therefore, that applicants keep in mind that submission of an application does not guarantee an interview, and should an applicant be interviewed, the interview may never result in an offer of employment.

The Embassy encourages equal opportunity and fair and equitable treatment for all, without regard to political affiliation, race, color, religion, national origin, sex marital status, age or handicapping condition.

Any questions regarding vacancies should be addressed to the Embassy's Human Resources Office through the HRO mailbox,
