UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) has three permanent positions in Baghdad, consisting of one UK-based officer and two locally engaged staff. One of the locally engaged positions is a long-standing post. The other two posts were created in 2009.

Alongside the full-time staff allocation, UKTI is currently employing two business consultants in Iraq on contracts that run through to the end of July 2009.
