Our Invitation to All Applicants
The Human Resources team enthusiastically invites people from all backgrounds and experiences to apply for opportunities at U.S. Embassy Belgrade. We take great pride in our fair and transparent recruiting process, including unbiased application evaluation, anonymous testing, and impartial interviewing. All qualified applicants are encouraged to consider a career at the U.S. Embassy.
The Human Resources Office (HR) manages recruiting for the U.S. Embassy with exception of USAID (Agency for International Development). USAID recruitment can be found at https://www.usaid.gov/work-usaid. The Belgrade Human Resources Office can be reached at BelgradeHRO@state.gov. Opportunities are advertised on the embassy’s website, as well as announced in relevant newspapers, trade publications, and university bulletins. Each vacancy announcement describes the position, outlines the qualifications, notes the application deadline, and explains how to apply. Applicants must either be permanent residents permitted to work in Serbia, or Eligible Family Members of U.S. Direct Hires posted to Serbia.
General Information about Job Applications
In compliance with U.S. law, an employment application received from any individual not present in Serbia at the time of submission is ineligible for consideration. American citizens are required under Serbian law to obtain residency in Serbia in order to work. An American citizen, who is offered employment by the U.S. Government and who is not already a resident of Serbia , must enter Serbia on a labor visa that has been issued by a Serbian authority in the United States. Any expenses associated with this lengthy process are the responsibility of the applicant, e.g. transportation, physical examination, etc.
All offers of employment are based on availability of funding. The U.S. Government is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)
The U.S. Embassy provides equal opportunity and fair and equitable treatment in employment to all people without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, political affiliation, marital status, or sexual orientation. The Department of State also strives to achieve equal employment opportunity in all personnel operations through continuing diversity enhancement programs and does not favor an applicant more due to associations with State colleagues.
