Job Opportunities

We provide Human Resources and recruitment services to all U.S. posts in Brazil as follows: the U.S. Embassy in Brasília, the Consulates General in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, the Consulate in Recife, Foreign Commercial Office in Belo Horizonte and Consular Agencies.

Applicants interested in working for the US Mission in Brazil should review each position vacancy thoroughly to ensure that their qualifications, skills and abilities meet the position requirements.  The resume must include all the necessary information such as: education level, work experience stating previous jobs, month/year worked, positions held, and duties performed. The resume must be forwarded to the address specified in the job announcement.

In order to be eligible for consideration, applicants must either be a Brazilian citizen or have the required work and residency permit allowing the individual to work in Brazil.

Applications must be submitted in English only for all advertised positions that require a level 3 (good working knowledge) or level 4 (fluent) in English. Resumes must also be sent to the address indicated in the vacancy announcement by the closing date of the position.  Resumes in Portuguese will not be accepted for positions with level 3 and 4 required English.

Due to the large volume of applications received, the Mission regrets that it cannot acknowledge every application. If you do not hear from us within a month after submitting your resumé, you may assume that your application has not been successful.

We extend our appreciation for considering the U.S. Government in Brazil as a potential employer.


  • The U.S. Mission in Brazil 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.

    The EEO complaint procedure is not available to individuals who believe they have been denied equal opportunity based upon marital status or political affiliation. Individuals with such complaints should avail themselves of the appropriate grievance procedures, remedies for prohibited personnel practices, and/or courts for relief.
