The above includes both UK Based Staff working overseas and Country Based Staff employed in country.

The Department for International Trade publishes all workforce transparency returns required by the Cabinet Office. This does not currently include how many staff are based in each country as this number can vary depending on joiners, movers and leavers each month.
