Your skills. Your team. Their development. If you love nurturing talent and supporting people to flourish at work, FCDO Services could the next step in your career. We provide first-class service for the UK government and our international partners, and we need someone to oversee staff training so we can continue to deliver.

In this vital role, you’ll join our diverse Engineering and Operations department (E&O) which focuses on all aspects of secure construction, from design to delivery. We create and refurbish buildings, install technical protective security systems and ensure our buildings and services remain safe and secure.

Nurture talent to help people be their best selves at work

This is a new position in a brand-new team, so you’ll be eager to make the role your own as you identity career development opportunities, oversee training plans for the whole of E&O and manage learning budgets.  

Your first port of call will be a skills audit, helping us to identity any gaps and put support into place so our staff can be their best selves at work. You’ll ensure all relevant health and safety regulations are observed, taking action to identify, address and resolve or escalate risks to relevant teams. A comfortable communicator, you’ll build and maintain professional relationships across all departments and seniorities, whether through managing direct reports, handling stakeholder relations or liaising with suppliers.

Organise, train, deliver

As a strategic and organised planner, you’ll lead on the skills matrix, technical career paths and professional development, setting up focus groups to look at talent and concession plans. Excellent time management is essential, as you’ll also manage capacity and capability to ensure the correct resource and efficient delivery on projects across E&O.

Confident using HERA (our HR and finance system), performing skills gap analyses and managing talent, you might be looking to step up or across with this role. Though you’ll be managing the progression of your team, we’ll be dedicated to supporting yours, offering training and workshops that match your career goals.

How we support you

But that’s not all. When you join FCDO Services you’ll enjoy flexible working, with 2-3 days in the office, an on-site OFSTED-registered nursery and a gym, plus canteens and restaurants. We offer a cycle-to-work scheme, Civil Service pension and competitive salary, alongside 25-30 days’ annual leave per year. But above all, we offer a fulfilling career where you’ll be able to help others reach their potential, as we help you to reach yours. It’s your job, bigger.

Every colleague must be security cleared before joining us. If you’re successful in your application, we’ll ask you to undergo our vetting process to achieve Developed Vetting (DV) clearance. You can find out more about vetting on our website: https://www.fcdoservicescareers.co.uk/how-to-apply/

Closing date for applications is: 30 March 2023 at midnight

It takes a diverse team to protect a diverse world

The vital work we do takes an incredible community of colleagues, with different skills, backgrounds, cultures and identities. We support every individual, so that you always know you’re welcome and valued. It’s what makes us a Disability Confident employer. And why we’re recognised as a ‘Carer Confident’ workplace. And it’s how you know you’re joining an inspiring, inclusive organisation.
