Abstract:The current global state of economic and political instability, combined with the rapid technological developments, has created a situation of constant evolvement and uncertainty. Careers in diplomacy are experiencing serious changes due to these developments. Diplomatic tasks, their required competencies, and corresponding management system will have to adapt along with the global arena and respond to the changes. This exploratory research uncovers the HRM policies and practices that are perceived to be most effective for achieving strategic goals related to global talent management of modern diplomats. Through the use of interviews as a research method the following three questions are answered: (1) ‘Which global changes are affecting the work of the modern diplomat?’, (2) ‘What are the core characteristics and competencies required of the modern diplomat?’, and (3) ‘Which Human Resource Management practices are effective for the global talent management of the modern diplomat?’. In this research a ‘modern diplomat’ refers to a diplomat which is active in the current period up to those working 10 years from now.
