SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee) – various. – February 27, 2019
working in a place with very high government official is a surreal experience.
There are Many aspects to this role that allow you to challenge yourself and benefit from the different avenues it allows you to explore.
A very relaxed yet busy environment, and constant excitement in the air. Many exciting events also took place within the 3 FCO buildings, which were usually high profile and that bought a sense of joy itself, to be a part of something so big.
overall a very pleasant working place and very friendly staff in general.

Commercial lead (Former Employee) – London – July 13, 2019
Ample opportunities for development and career progress if start working FCO in young age ...going through ranks but not the best place for mid level career enteries ...it takes time to progress and sometimes so slow one may need to change path after all. Extremtly intelligent, ambitious environment with highly capable and talented resources ...in right teams you go up and progress so well. In wrong teams ...it is boring at the very best.
Ample opportunities for development but not quickly enough to transition
