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”
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:
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.
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.
