Finance

Accounting for the nation’s interests. 
Striking the perfect balance.
Creating value in your work. 
It all matters.

We provide vital services to government-level customers, and our first-in-class expertise means we’re constantly relied on. At any moment in time, we have hundreds of active projects around the world,  each with varying revenue streams. Our Finance team not only take great pride to understand the value in the financial management of these projects, they ensure everything is compliant with the National Audit Office to help deliver year end accounts to Parliament.

Trusted, commercially successful, and always growing. This is Finance with a twist.

Hear from one of the team

I think being part of the Civil Service means you attract values-driven people who come here for a wider purpose. That definitely comes through in our culture. It gives you a sense of community you don’t always get in other organisations.

Learning and development

Alongside the training of the wider FCDO Services team, there are some specific options in place to help our Finance team excel:

  • Two different Finance apprenticeship options mean there’s plenty of scope for entry-level training
  • Colleagues are supported to gain managerial qualifications, including Lean 6 Sigma training at yellow, green and black belt level
  • We make case study support available for any colleagues aiming for Accountancy qualifications, e.g. CIMA, ACCA, and AAT

Both the Finance team and the HR team are acting as subject matter experts this year to implement a new Enterprise Resource Planning system with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

This year, our efficient billing team generated more than £200m in invoices – a record for our organisation.

What do I need to thrive here?

You know the technicalities of finance – and you can explain them to non-finance colleagues.

You want to make things better for financial system users, internally and externally.

You don’t keep your head down; you build deep relationships across the organisation.

You want to help the whole organisation thrive, taking us from strength to strength.
