UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) is not an employer in its own right; for the majority of its human resource requirements it draws on civil service staff (including those with contractual arrangements) employed by one or other of its two parent Departments—the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

UKTI utilises the performance management and reward arrangements of the relevant Departments in order to set individual objectives and recognise achievement.
