If you’re looking for something more from your next project management opportunity, you’ll find it at FCO Services.
With responsibility for a £50million+ portfolio of government properties across the globe, we deliver many different kinds of critical projects for our customers involving embassies, office buildings, secure bunkers and more. Join us, and you’ll get to oversee every aspect of these unique projects, ensuring they are delivered on time and to budget, and that they achieve the high levels of quality our customers demand.
Deliver diverse projects in unique locations
You’ll be responsible for the end-to-end delivery of a diverse range of projects, which could involve anything from building refurbishments to IT installations, and from risk assessments to critical security work. As well as setting the work schedule for each project, and making sure all the right contracts and resources are in place, you will be expected to identify and mitigate potential risks and find solutions to any issues that may arise.
Throughout all your work, whether you’re negotiating agreements with contractors, contributing to front-end design, or helping deliver the final build, you will always be focused on increasing value for money and on improving the quality of the products and services we deliver to the client.
Test your problem-solving skills to the limit
These roles call for qualified project managers with, ideally, some first-hand knowledge of construction, security, IT installation or estates project management. We currently have opportunities for people with varying amounts of experience. But whatever level you are at, you must be a PRINCE2 practitioner (or have APMP qualifications) and have some direct experience of procurement.
Given the critical nature of the projects you’ll be working on, it is important that you know how to manage multiple stakeholders and can communicate effectively not only with clients but with everyone involved in making it happen. It’s also important that you are someone who can always deliver, even when you’re having to work on several projects at once, and no matter how challenging or fast-paced the environment gets.
And take your career somewhere completely new
At FCO Services, we keep information, assets and people safe all around the world. 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. It also offers an unusual level of variety and scope, not only in terms of the kind of projects you get to manage but the kind of buildings you get to work on as well. From fine residences to embassies, from bunkers to office blocks, you’ll be making a vital impact on unique projects all over the world.
All our employees have to be security cleared to the highest level, so you will need to undergo a comprehensive vetting process before joining.
Closing date: 31st January 2018.
