At the same time, you’ve also got a level of interaction and working with people that you don’t get elsewhere. Our development teams invent, prototype, learn and test – but we’re also heavily involved in doing real life show-and-tells, installing the products, and teaching customers how to use it. You’re actually a part of the final handover to the government bodies we work with.
“What’s incredible here is that you get an understanding of the full lifecycle of whatever product you’re working on. In another business, you might get to work on just the software or the electronics, then you pass it onto a tester, or a manufacturer. You rarely get a chance to see the thing you’ve imagined becoming a reality. At FCDO Services, you really get to lead on it and see it through from start to finish.
Plus, you’re doing it within an inclusive culture. People in our team have all kinds of needs, skills and lifestyles. Some have young families, or elderly relatives to take care of, or they might have a long-term medical condition. People step up to support each other, and it means you’re empowered and in the right mindset to do your best work every day.”
