The FCO keeps details of those wishing to be considered for appointments to its non-departmental public bodies on a departmental database. The database is trawled for all ministerial appointments. NDPBs who make their own public appointments will be sent copies of completed nomination forms.
Alternatively, individuals may wish to contact these NDPBs directly. The FCO NDPBs which have no ministerial appointments are the British-Russia Centre, the British Association for Central and Eastern Europe, the British Council and the Great Britain-China Centre.
