00:00 [FCDO Services logo appears on screen on a peacock blue background]

[Music plays]

00:03 [Logo fades. On a pale blue background two roundels appear. One shows the interior of a modern embassy’s relaxation area with modern sofas, lamps, and artwork, and the other shows a picture of two colleagues wearing hardhats and studying a computer. The images appear side-by-side with the text ‘Government buildings’.]

>>Narrator: We construct and repair government buildings.

00:08 [The first two roundels disappear, and three new ones appear. Each has an image: there’s a woman on a phone; a man typing on a keyboard; a close up of someone interacting with a smartphone. All three images have an icon of a padlock over them.]

>>Narrator: We make government tech secure

0:08 [The three roundels disappear. An image of Earth appears, with objects appearing around it in orbit. The first orbiting object is a brown, square parcel. The second is a container ship, full of shipping containers, which sounds its horn. The third is a silver four-door car.]

>>Narrator: We pack, ship, drive, fly,

>>Narrator: We translate for leaders.

00:15 [The words fade out and four images of different embassy buildings pop up on screen. Some are older architecture; some are modern. You can hear a rumbling and a cracking sound as a crack in the ground appears between the embassies. The image on screen shakes.]

>>Narrator: We earthquake-proof embassies.

00:17 [The embassies disappear and a series of white visa application stamps appear on the blue background to form the shape of a cloud]

>>Narrator: We host visa applications in the Cloud

00:20 [The visa stamps come towards screen and are replaced with seven shimmering bubbles of various sizes. Each bubble is full of 1s and 0s – binary numbers – and each figure flicks back and forth between 1 and 0.]

>>Narrator: We protect information from cyber threat.

00:23 [The bubbles disappear, and a cut out image of an iron security fence appears from the left. There are two security cameras on the fence, slowly rotating to scan the area.]

>>Narrator: We install security cameras…

00:26 [Another image appears to sit alongside the fence: it’s three people in hard hats, working on solar panels.]

>>Narrator: and solar panels.

>>Narrator: In short, we excel in supporting government.

00:30 [The people remain but the word government changes to become the words ‘each other’.]

>>Narrator: And we always support each other.

00:32 [The people disappear and are replaced by two images in roundels. The smaller one has someone measuring out a piece of wood with a tape measure and pencil. The larger one shows someone installing a security camera.]

>>Narrator: We are carpenters and CCTV installers,

>>Narrator: accountants and architects.

00:39 [The images fade out and are replaced by the FCDO Services crest of a lion and a unicorn. Boxes surround the logo with different types of careers written in them. Clockwise they read: ‘Human Resources; Logistics; Commercial; Skilled Trades; Procurement; Apprenticeships; Finance; Engineering.]

>>Narrator: We are home to all sorts of skills.     

00:42 [The written boxes with careers flip to display images to represent different cultures or festivals from around the world, all surrounding the FCDO Services crest.]
