At FDCO Services, the work you do will mean more. Government-level customers in the UK and around the world rely on us to keep information, assets and people safe. Join our procurement team, and you can contribute to this vital work while making significant progress in your career.

A key support role that’s different every day

This is very wide-ranging role within a busy section of our procurement team. In the space of a single day, you could be doing anything from processing purchase orders to compiling data for monthly management information reporting to getting involved in quotation exercises. A significant portion of your time will be focused on internal customers, supporting them through the purchasing process, processing their requests and handling day-to-day enquiries. Our customers deserve the very best, so you’ll help us to uphold our customer promise: to be reliable, responsive and build relationships.

Take your administration and communication skills to the next level

You will be dealing with people throughout FCDO Services, including members of senior management and external suppliers, so good communication skills, written and verbal are essential. Given the diverse nature of this role, you will need to be a highly organised person with the ability to prioritise your own workload. IT literacy is also important, including experience of creating spreadsheets and data management therefore attention to detail is paramount. You do not need any previous purchasing or procurement experience, however an interest in pursuing a career in procurement is beneficial.

And build a long-term procurement career

In order to keep information, assets and people safe all around the world, we purchase a vast range of goods and services - everything from building materials and services to IT products. Therefore, if you’re looking to broaden your experience and exposure, you’ve come to the right place. This role offers you the perfect opportunity to develop your skills, and with training and support enter a career in procurement.

All our employees must be security cleared before joining us, so you’ll need to undergo a vetting process if you’re successful in your application. This role would require you to undergo Security Clearance (SC) Vetting. You can find out more about vetting on our website.

It takes a diverse team to protect a diverse world.
The vital work we do takes an incredible community of colleagues, with different skills, backgrounds, cultures and identities. We support every individual, so that you always know you’re welcome and valued. It’s what makes us a Disability Confident employer. And why we’re recognised as a ‘Carer Confident’ workplace.
