Working with the consular team in Milan, who will deal with general, day-to-day issues, the honorary consul will provide consular assistance to British nationals visiting or residing in the Florence district.

Applications are welcome from those who are willing to dedicate their time to helping British nationals in distress and who remain calm and level-headed in emergency or crisis situations.

This is a high-profile, prestigious position and an exciting opportunity to join an expanding and modern team of honorary British consuls across Italy. The preferred candidate is a British national or an Italian national with strong links to Great Britain, who has an office or place of work established in Florence where consular business could be conducted.
