Governments look to FCO Services to keep their information and assets secure in a constantly changing world, and our work is relied on by customers around the world, including the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

This is an opportunity to join our team supporting the Sensitivity Review Service, and build your career as part of a new, growing team that determines whether information should be released or withheld under Freedom of Information Act and Public Records Act exemptions.

Manage information of national importance

You will play an important part in the ongoing digitisation of our information archives, handling everything from microfiche scanning to the preparation of files prior to electronic transfer to The National Archives. You will also be responsible for the electronic redaction of both paper and digital material.

Put your attention to detail to vital use

We’re looking for someone who has a great eye for detail, especially when reviewing and editing information on screen, and who can manage their own complex workload effectively, even when facing tight deadlines. It’s a small, close-knit team, so you’ll need to be comfortable with collaborative working. And while a digital background is not strictly essential, it would be great if you had some previous experience, ideally in records and information management. Good knowledge of Word, Outlook and PowerPoint is a must.

And give your long-term prospects a boost

At FCO Services, we work with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and other customers to protect the UK’s interests at home and overseas. That means every role makes a difference. It also makes it a rich and rewarding environment in which to develop your career. Not only will you enjoy on-the-job training but you will also have excellent opportunities for development and progression, both within your team and the wider organisation. In short? It’s your job, bigger.

Successful candidates will be required to complete security clearance.
