Assistant Accountant Fixed Asset Maintenance

Hanslope Park, Milton Keynes

Salary £22,220 - £28,665 + great benefits, pension scheme & £1,000 location allowance

This is not a traditional government financial role because we’re not a traditional government organisation. Our work has a commercial and international edge. So yours will too.

The complexity is the challenge

Producing our monthly management and statutory accounts will put your Excel skills to the test. You’ll manipulate and analyse huge sets of data and then create reports for senior managers and stakeholders, while getting involved in reporting to the National Audit Office too. You’ll also liaise with colleagues to manage our fixed asset recording and accounting - providing the business with guidance and support. And every new bit of business we win will add interest to your role.

You’re ready to excel

With an AAT qualification or equivalent, a highly analytical approach and outstanding problem-solving skills, you will thrive in this role. Your Excel skills are second to none, and you know how to take data from multiple sources and then produce complex formulae to solve intricate challenges. What’s more, you’re proactive when it comes to identifying and responding to business requirements. While not essential, some knowledge of Oracle would prove a real asset.

And you’re looking to build for the future

At FCO Services, we keep information, assets and people safe all around the world. Our clients, 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. And once in our team, you will find plenty of opportunities to broaden your role and develop your skills.

All our employees have to be security cleared to the highest level, so you will need to undergo a comprehensive vetting process before joining.
