Alumni DFID Former Staff

Staying in Touch After DFID

If you have ever been employed by the UK DFID, ODA or ODM (Department for International Development, the Overseas Development Administration or the Overseas Development Ministry) for a period of six months or more, the Alumni Association is for you.


It is your first port of call for getting the latest news from fellow alumni and updates about the work of the Department.


Our members are spread across the world and include both those retired and those continuing to work after leaving DFID.


We are keen to welcome more. Please let us have your ideas on how we can best serve your interests and those of our diverse membership.



Purpose of the Association:


  • to enable members to maintain contact with each other, and with serving DFID staff

  • to enable members to maintain their interest in and to support DFID’s work

  • to provide information on opportunities to provide expertise to DFID or other organisations.
