A natural strategist and a keen financial brain, you’re at the top of your game as a finance business analyst. At twenty paces, you can spot the issues that affect your business’ commercial strength, and make insightful recommendations that enable your team to perform better together. You drive continuous improvement in your organisation – and you’re continually aiming higher for yourself too.

We know how you feel. FCO Services are valued by government-level customers worldwide, who look to us to provide secure construction, logistics, digital solutions, and more. Protecting the UK’s interests globally, our organisation has witnessed incredible growth – but our ambitions are bigger still. With our revenue set to grow from £160m to £200m in the next two years, we need to expand our Finance team to keep pace with our success and chart a course for the future.

That’s where you’ll come in as our new Finance Business Analyst. Part of a new wave of energetic experts, you’ll be the financial drive behind a thriving business that protects people, information, and assets across the planet. And on top of a strong sense of purpose, you’ll find a home amongst our diverse family and enjoy all the perks and pension of a Civil Service career. In short? It’s your job, bigger.

Maximise profit to make our extraordinary work count for more

You’ll identify anything that impacts the commercial health of our business, from clunky systems to excessive administrative tasks. There’s no IT involved in this analyst role, because the focus is on finance and strategy. It’s also less about the numbers, and more about removing barriers so that our people can do the best possible job – and keep improving every day. You’ll make every process and procedure as simple as possible, and with your clear, engaging recommendations, we’ll have the insight we need to increase efficiency and profitability across everything from purchasing to payroll, accounts payable, order management, and workforce planning – putting us on the track to achieve our huge growth target.

Apply experience where it has extraordinary impact

Our remit sees us work with governments at home and overseas, rising to complex challenges – whether it’s repairing a centuries-old embassy, or providing a government body with top-of-the-line secure servers. That work and scale makes us a complex organisation, but we’re looking for someone who’ll quickly understand the inner workings of our business and our teams. You bring a real passion for making processes and systems work for people, not against them. Translating your findings into concepts that are easy for a wide range of audiences to understand will be second nature. You’ll also be adept at turning those findings into deliverable workstreams, and explaining them in a way that makes it easy for everyone to get onboard.

Enable business change and find life-changing rewards

You’re facing world-class challenges here – but you’ll also find incredible perks, like our Civil Service pension, free parking, and well-equipped campus, as well as a rare quality of work-life balance. You’ll leave work firmly at the office and get home on time – and if you’ve got young children, you might even take advantage of our onsite OFSTED-registered nursery. This is an inclusive, supportive team where flexible working is the norm. We’re big on diversity, big on inclusion and big on giving you whatever you need to succeed. Like we said, it’s your job bigger – and your benefits too.

Please note: all our colleagues must be security cleared, so you will need to undergo a vetting process before joining.

Hanslope Park based posts attract a Location Allowance of £1,750 per annum.

FCO Services are regulated by the Civil Service Commission.
