About PAE- Moscow/Beijing


As a leading provider of government support services, with nearly six decades of experience, PAE provides support services to the Department of State at their Embassies in Moscow, Russia, and Beijing, China, as well as several outlying Consulates.  PAE is seeking experienced professionals to support these exciting missions with the Department of State.

There are two main Embassies supported by PAE and the Embassies Program: Moscow, Russia, and Beijing, China, as well as the several outlying Consulates including Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shanghai, and Shenyang. (Hong Kong, and the American embassy in Hanoi, Vietnam; and the U.S. Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and the USA NATO facility).


PAE provides full-time support to the U.S. Embassies in Moscow, Russia, and Beijing, China for the United States Embassies Program. The U.S. government trusts PAE to run its embassies in some of the most critical and sensitive locations in the world. 

PAE has developed a legacy of unrivaled past performance that positions us to offer the very best in embassy support around the world.  This depth of experience also contributes to our success with building and maintaining classified facilities and other work with the intelligence community.  Thanks to our track record, we have the potential to expand existing embassy support as many missions transition from contingency to stability. 

The Employee Experience

While working as a systems administrator, HVAC technician, electrician, fire systems technician, plumber, or any other skilled trade position that PAE staffs at the embassies, our employees are provided with the opportunity to support the Department of State and the diplomatic mission they serve.  They are able to work and live at the embassy community and support the international relations between the countries.  They also have the opportunity to reside in some of the largest and most exciting cities in the world … Moscow Russia and Beijing China. 

Ideal Candidate

While the nature of the U.S. Embassies program requires highly skilled, professional, self-starter attitudes, more importantly, we desire candidates that have the sense of adventure and desire to experience a chance of a lifetime and become a part of the U.S. Embassy family in one of the largest cities in the world.  In addition to the individual required job skills, all candidates must pass a pre-employment background check, a drug screen, and provide proof of U.S. citizenship.  Also, applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information. 

Room and Board

In addition to the chance of a lifetime, this contract provides a fully furnished apartment in the city including utilities at no cost to our employees.

Housing accommodations range from high-end apartments in the center of the city to townhome-style apartments on the embassy compound. 

Employee Perks

Participants receive five weeks of paid time off per year, ten paid U.S. holidays, and up to ten paid local holidays.  All of this paid time off gives you the opportunity to do some personal leisure travel in other parts of the world.  In addition, you will be provided with one paid round-trip flight during the initial two-year contract period.  

Getting Here and Getting Around

Participants will work with the PAE U.S. Embassies Program team to coordinate travel from their home to their assigned Embassy or Consulate. 

When you arrive, a team member will meet you at the airport and escort you to your new apartment and help you get familiar with the neighborhood.  All of our locations and cities offer public transportation such as subway or metro, buses, and taxi services.  In most cases, the public transportation is inexpensive and easy to use.  Some of the apartments are within walking distance to the Embassy, shopping, and restaurants in the area.

Moscow and Beijing are two of the world’s largest cities offering any number of fun and exciting things to do and see.  There are concerts, museums, parks, shopping, and restaurants throughout the city just waiting for you to explore and enjoy.  The Embassies also organize excursions and events to help you see some of the sights.
