Based Hanslope Park, Milton Keynes
At FCO Services, your job will mean more. Government-level customers in the UK and around the world rely on us to keep information, assets and people safe. We do this by providing secure construction, secure logistics, and secure digital solutions. We build and renovate embassies. We make secure deliveries across continents. We help governments move servers securely to the cloud.
And, by helping us deliver a strategic procurement service and enabling us to make smarter decisions about the products, services and suppliers we need, you’ll play an important role in our ongoing work.
Discover a diversity of opportunity
Joining our Strategic Sourcing team, which combines experts in both procurement and finance, you’ll find yourself in a very collaborative environment. And, while your main focus will be on logistics, security and corporate services, you’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to a broader selection of areas. Our work varies tremendously throughout the year, so you’ll be applying your procurement knowledge and stakeholder-management skills to an equally varied remit.
There are two roles on offer here, both with similar responsibilities. The biggest difference between them is one of line-management. In one of the positions, you’ll oversee 4 Category Managers and look after their development.
Take your broad experience and skills further
We’re looking for people with a thorough understanding of business strategy, and excellent engagement skills. You’ll be doing a lot more than desk work with us – you’ll be collaborating with people across the department and the organisation. You’ll need an MCIPS qualification (or part-qualification) and strong people skills. Just as importantly, you’ll know the differences between private and public sector procurement work and be both realistic and excited about the boundaries and challenges faced by a public body like ours.
And have a greater impact than you ever imagined
At FCO Services, our work protects the UK’s interests both at home and overseas. Our customers, who include the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, look to us to respond with speed, agility and innovation to their ever-changing security challenges. This gives every job here added significance and provides the ideal environment for you to hone your skills and expertise. Join us in this role and you’ll make a real impact on the procurement team, as you help deliver a more strategic approach to services needed around the world. In short – it’s your job, bigger.
All our employees have to be security cleared, so you will need to undergo a vetting process before joining.
