In today’s complex and fast-moving business climate, rapidly adapting to change is fundamental.

The companies that keep pace with technological and regulatory development will survive…

…But only those with real clarity of purpose, fast evolving organisational capability and the right connections will thrive.

FCBI exists to deliver the intelligence and foster the relationships that shape strategy and secures the future for leading companies worldwide.

FCBI: A Dynamic Global Business

Grown through endeavour… powered by results

Founded round a kitchen table in 1990, originally with a focus on emerging markets, the company has grown organically in size and influence.

From a single central London base, the company has grown organically in size and influence and is now one of the largest and fastest growing independent events companies in the sector.

The FCBI brands (and events) serve a diverse range of industries and place a focus on the challenges and opportunities resulting from technological and strategic innovation.

A company built around better understanding what businesses really want and need

The dedicated, semi-autonomous industry teams at FCBI work to foster close relationships with the customers they serve; and a deep understanding the strategic challenges they face.

In-depth research underpins the development of all products, resulting in highly focused and carefully curated information and event agendas.

Speaker faculties are made up of senior executives with critical insight on topics targeted. Exhibitions are geared to showcase the solutions of providers at the forefront of their fields.

As pioneers in the use of content for community development and marketing we foster year-round contact with our customers. The quality and value of the information we generate drives loyalty and underpins why our brands are considered leaders in their respective markets.

We’re always looking for good people

The FCBI work environment will provide you with a thorough business education.

Whatever path you take in the organisation, you’ll develop business skills that put you head and shoulders above your peers at the same stage of career development – most importantly, you’ll develop the judgment to make good business decisions in different environments and situations.

Your personal development will be delivered by a mix of on-the-job learning (supported by experienced and highly talented mentors) and formal external training.

As one ex-employee (now a director at a FTSE 100 company) once commented: “Working at FCBI is better than an MBA”

How do we deliver this?

FCBI employees are given training in the fundamentals of business from the word go. The name of the game is continuous improvement and you’re expected to hit the ground running!

To facilitate this FCBI operates a 70-20-10 split to learning and development, where:

  • 70% is on the job. I.e. you’re doing things yourself from day one
  • 20% is with a mentor. This could be your manager, an experienced team member, or a peer. Part of your development should be striving to become a mentor, and taking on further responsibility.
  • 10% is formal. E.g. in a classroom environment

Who?

FCBI looks for interesting, passionate people; when we find them, we’ll work hard to keep them challenged and fulfilled. The focus is to have as many great individuals working together as we can.

There is no ‘typical’ employee - we want a great mix of unique traits, cultures and voices. The common thread among us all is a desire to make things happen and come up with the way to do it well.

What do we offer?

We operate a progression setup built upon merit. I.e. No need to wait for the person hired before you to get promoted. If you’re good enough, the next step is yours to take.

  • a workplace without micromanagement, where employees are given responsibility for their projects from the word go
  • a performance-driven environment where you’ll be given responsibility for your own success
  • training and development to help you reach your full potential
  • the skills and support to make your own business decisions
  • a culture that encourages staff to grasp big opportunities rather than pulling them up on small mistakes room to learn from your own experiences
  • the chance to share in the rewards of your success
  • A culture of trust
  • Profit Share Scheme
  • Product Research Bonuses
  • Pension Scheme
  • A range of fitness related benefits such as; FC Netball, Football, corporate gym membership and fresh fruit deliveries every morning.
