The Family Liaison Office (FLO) serves Foreign Service employees and their families from over 50 U.S. government agencies serving overseas and returning to the Untied States. FLO's website (www.state.gov/flo) and sub-pages feature vital information that directly impacts the Foreign Service community. In 2019, FLO's seventy-five plus pages on state.gov received approximately 57,000 average pageviews per month. Join our Communications and Outreach Team in marketing FLO's advocacy, programs, and services via our digital presence.

For the 2020-2021 semesters, FLO is seeking an enthusiastic individual to:
- Review/edit website content, including imagery, formatting, and consistency.
- Utilize creative thinking and research to suggested updates to content.
- Develop documents and resources like a "FLO Website Style Guide."
