Apprenticeships with FCO Services
A job that pays good money. Quality training that’s fully-funded. A career doing something meaningful that you really enjoy. Choose an Apprenticeship with FCO Services, and you can have it all.
Interesting and inspiring work that really matters
We offer eight different programmes in all, so whether you’re more of a thinker or you like to get hands-on, we’re sure to have something that plays to your strengths and brings out the best in you. Whichever programme you join, you’ll have an important part to play in maintaining the nation’s security – protecting people, safeguarding assets and securing critical information, both here in the UK and overseas. All of which gives our people a tremendous sense of purpose and makes these roles even more rewarding.
Skills and qualifications that will take you further
Our programmes vary from 18 months to four years in duration. But all combine practical, on-the-job training with support towards recognised qualifications. By the time you finish, you’ll have gathered all the knowledge, skills and experience you need to build a successful career for yourself with FCO Services. And when you consider the scale and scope of our work, you’ll realise just how far that career could take you.
To have it all, here’s what you’ll need first
Anyone of any age can join us, but there are certain things we do insist on. Most programmes require five GCSEs (or equivalent) at Grade 4 (C) or above. And for some, you’ll need certain other qualifications too. But every bit as important, you must be:
· Genuinely passionate about your chosen field
· Ready to take on the biggest challenges, wherever they are in the world
· Keen to push yourself and eager to learn
· A great team player, but happy to work on your own initiative
Make no mistake, it’ll be hard work. But if you have the motivation, we’ll help you balance your work and studies, and give you the kind of opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. What’s more, you’ll earn as you learn and enjoy a host of great benefits, including a generous pension scheme.
To meet our eligibility criteria, you will need to be a British citizen who has been permanently resident in the UK for the last three years and, due to the nature of our work, all employees have to be security cleared, so you will need to undergo a comprehensive vetting process before joining.
The tools we use, the work we undertake, and the challenges we tackle do not discriminate. Neither do we. All around the world, our people work within a diversity of situations and cultures, which call for a variety of skills, mindsets and individual backgrounds. Bring yours.
