FCO Services protects people, assets and information all over the world. That means bringing together a whole team of experts to solve international security problems on a daily basis. A team that goes beyond the ordinary, because the stakes are higher than the everyday job.
Our government-level customers – including the Foreign and Commonwealth Office – deliver vital work that affects our whole nation, which means you will too.
Demonstrate your technical expertise and inspire a global team As an Electrician with a JIB recognised qualification to BTEC (ONC) /AM2 and NVQ level 3; a completed recognised apprenticeship; and a working knowledge of BS 7671: 2008, you’re the expert we need.
Working for FCO Services, you’ll use this expertise to commission electrical installations, such as LV distribution, small power, lighting, containment systems and fire alarms both in the UK and overseas.
You’ll carry out specialist work and be given the responsibility to manage your own future projects. And you’ll liaise with other teams, managers and colleagues delivering a service that exceeds expectations.
Work on diverse projects that secure our nation’s embassies With this role, you’ll be offered a truly global opportunity. But this isn’t to be taken lightly. You’ll be required to spend up to 22 weeks per year on overseas installations.
You’ll need to be flexible, collaborative and, above all, committed. It means you’ll be working on diverse projects that are important on an international scale: you could be rewiring our overseas embassies.
So it means applying your technical knowledge to more challenging, diplomatic missions, adapting your way of working to your location. It would therefore be an advantage if you have experience of operating overseas in different environments.
Let your personal development take your career to new heights At FCO Services, our customers look to us to respond with speed, agility and innovation to their ever-changing security challenges.
The importance and sheer diversity of our work will present you with some unique challenges. And the experience you’ll gain will take your career to the next level. It’s a huge responsibility. But it’s a great one too. In short, it’s your job, bigger.
