Use your expertise to engage managers at all levels
This role calls for an experienced HR generalist with up-to-date knowledge of HR best practice and employment law.

And prepare to make a major impact
We respond with speed, agility and innovation to ever-changing security challenges all over the globe. This gives every job here added significance. Yours included. Not only will you be driving the transformation of two key business areas but you will also help shape the HR agenda for FCO Services as a whole. Then there’s all the benefits we offer, whether it’s the perks and pension that come with a Civil Service career, or our excellent support for work-life balance, including flexible working and an onsite OFSTED-registered nursery. In short? It’s your job, bigger.
