A beautiful impressive environment to work at and learn excellent skills from some of the best in the field ...but ...
Commercial lead (voormalige medewerker) –  London13 juli 2019
Ample opportunities for development and career progress if start working FCO in young age ...going through ranks but not the best place for mid level career enteries ...it takes time to progress and sometimes so slow one may need to change path after all.
Extremtly intelligent, ambitious environment with highly capable and talented resources ...in right teams you go up and progress so well. In wrong teams ...it is boring at the very best.
Pluspunten
Ample opportunities for development but not quickly enough to transition
Minpunten
Very low paid - as most civil service bodies are.

Great location
G4S/SERVEST SECURITY OFFICER (huidige medewerker) –  Building 64 juli 2019
Busy site in 65 acres, fulfilling security needs to the client, various job roles, can be demanding at times, simple shift pattern, 4 on 4 off, or days only.
Pluspunten
Out in the countryside
Minpunten
Location, requires own transport

Average
Operations and Compliance Manager (huidige medewerker) –  London, Greater London8 mei 2019
Good career opportunities if that is what you want. More aimed at young single men and women, work/life balance is an issue and rarely receive any praise for going above and beyond.

Historical Place

Great place to work in a grandeur of a building with lots of great history. A great bunch of people in the team but decision making could have been better.

interesting and diverse
SECURITY OFFICER (voormalige medewerker) –  various.27 februari 2019
working in a place with very high government official is a surreal experience.

There are Many aspects to this role that allow you to challenge yourself and benefit from the different avenues it allows you to explore.

A very relaxed yet busy environment, and constant excitement in the air. Many exciting events also took place within the 3 FCO buildings, which were usually high profile and that bought a sense of joy itself, to be a part of something so big.

overall a very pleasant working place and very friendly staff in general.
Pluspunten
Working alongside the backbone of the country
Minpunten
very long hours.

Really interesting place to work but poor pay. Slow advancement and no annual bonus. Workplace culture is good and you get to work with some amazing people.

An interesting environment
Protection Specialist (voormalige medewerker) –  Kurdistan24 januari 2019
I would recomemend working with the FCO. They have the interest of the U.K. at the forefront of their operations. Their work is interesting and challanging.

Red tape due to high security
AD SME (voormalige medewerker) –  Hanslope Park26 november 2018
The 'red tape' that was around every process caused the delay in a lot of areas within the company. As a contractor this was actually a good thing from a selfish point of view, but as a taxpayer this was a bad example of resource use etc.

good role but low pay
student brand ambassador for travel aware (voormalige medewerker) –  Home Based11 juli 2018
the role was fun and engaging. I was able to plan around my degree. but the pay was quite low. the main disadvangate is there is no progression. after finishing being a student, there are no other ways to stay in the role, nor are you offered anything else within the office.
Pluspunten
easy to plan around studies
Minpunten
no further opportunities

Don't join for the money
Finance Manager (huidige medewerker) –  Milton Keynes2 juli 2018
Need I say more than the title. You won't get promoted quickly nor will you be recognised for your efforts. The work place is too bureaucratic and you have to climb over so many hurdles to do the simplest things.
