I dont reckon embassies would do work ex. becuase you'd need a sercurity clearance by who? MI5? and that would take time if its anything to go by ASIO.

A few people in my school went to embassies of a Spanish speaking country... I've got a feeling that they had the details on a database at school, so someone a few years ago had the connections...

clrearance takes about six weeks for normal people applying for jobs and you have to fill out a massive questionnaire with questions like. ' have you ever conspired to bring down the governemnt', 'have you ever been part of a terrorist organisation'
