For a librarian or knowledge and information management (KIM) professional, this is a rare and unique challenge. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) promotes the country’s interests overseas. As you might imagine, the knowledge, information and data we use is often of great importance. Every effort you make to administer it efficiently and effectively will be appreciated by colleagues – and, in turn, UK citizens and businesses all over the world.
You will help manage a range of intranet, digital and information management services that inform policy and FCO services, including a new Office 365 SharePoint platform. There will be material to publish, research to undertake, data to organise and new technologies to plan, exploit and help others to use. You will liaise with and handle requests from overseas as well as FCO staff and Ministerial Offices in the heart of government.
We will encourage you to rotate within the team, so you develop your expertise. Equally, you will play a key role in the services’ evolution – suggesting new processes, innovative technology and practical changes that ensure we stay at the forefront of the field.
You must be a British Citizen to apply. It is also important that you are KIM-qualified, with a relevant degree or Chartered membership of an information management body. After that, it is your flexible approach to tasks, experience of different systems and customer skills that will set you apart.
Benefits include the Civil Service Pension, flexible working opportunities, and access to the London gym and staff restaurant. But ultimately, this is about taking personal responsibility for a delivering and enhancing a service of national importance.
