£36,940 - £45,870 plus £1,750 location allowance and exceptional benefits, including civil service pension and onsite nursery
Hanslope Park, Milton Keynes
FCO Services work with government-level customers worldwide, offering services including secure construction, secure IT and digital solutions, secure logistics and more. We build and repair embassies. We safely move government servers to the Cloud. We make sure critical deliveries stay safe as they move across the world. And on top of all that, we make sure we provide UK taxpayers with value for money.
Naturally, that wouldn’t be possible without the work of our Finance team here in the UK. As our Financial Accountant, you’ll help our business comply with accounting standards and government regulations, making sure there are robust financial controls in place across our business. And in doing that, you’ll make sure our organisation manages public money to the very highest standards, to provide services that protect people, assets and information everywhere.
Provide timely reporting that makes a difference time after time
You’ve never once let a deadline go by: you’re prompt in everything you do, and your financial reporting is no exception. As a qualified and deeply experienced accountant, you’ll ensure all our financial accounts are accurately prepared, whether it’s monthly reviews or the year-end close process. Your detailed financial analysis will provide real insight on our business’ income, expenditure and balance sheet, and thanks to your thorough assessment against previous performance and future forecasts, we’ll always know how we’re doing and where we’re heading.
Provide advice to a business that supports government advisors
You’ve got a wealth of accounting wisdom – and you don’t keep it to yourself. You provide your team with technical support and advice on all aspects of financial and management accounting. In fact, you’ll even provide knowledge and support to your line manager, including annual report contributions and feedback on National Audit Office matters. You believe in sharing knowledge, and you keep an eye on how we can all improve, whether it’s developing and strengthening our internal controls and processes, or reviewing new standards to understand how they could apply to our organisation.
Find your job bigger – and your benefits too
At FCO Services, you’re applying the skills you already know, but for an organisation with extraordinary impact. The sense of purpose is refreshing – and so are the benefits, whether it’s the perks and pension that come with a Civil Service career, or our excellent support for work-life balance, including flexible working and an onsite OFSTED-registered nursery. You’ll find that you’re equipped to do your best work here, with an impact you never imagined. In short? It’s your job, bigger.
All our employees have to be security cleared to the highest level, so you will need to undergo a comprehensive vetting process before joining.
