Yesterday, The Security Council got to have a peak at the life in the British Embassy. As the OSCE simulators went to the Embassy of Serbia, SC together with some organizers and our Secretary General Sonja had the opportunity to meet some of the staff representing UK in Finland.
The British Embassy is located in Kaivopuisto in southern Helsinki on the same street with many other states’ representative offices. It is a beautiful old pink building with classical interiors and spacious and bright rooms with a sea view.
We were given a warm welcome by Liz Boyle, the Deputy Head of Mission and other members of the embassy staff. Andrew Wells, the Head of the Political and Press team kept up a very lively discussion with the delegates from a whole range of issues. Communication Manager Reetta Purontakanen asked questions about the press team’s work and told that her own job is very versatile as she is the only person in charge of communication in the Embassy.
