FCB Group of Companies (FCB) is a specialist workplace compliance solutions provider, traditionally known for its strengths in delivering employment and industrial relations services for over 30 years. The company is made up of five core business areas that complement each other in providing a comprehensive compliance solution for their clients. The team of workplace experts provide a suite of solutions spanning legal services, HR consulting, contracting and management, migration services, HR technology solutions, and ISO certification.
The current team at FCB consists of over 150 staff including eight partners and 37 professionals based in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and New Zealand. FCB is the only workplace relations firm in Australia with five Accredited Employment and Industrial Law Specialists in their team, with Managing Partner Campbell Fisher as the only lawyer in Australia to be recognised as an Accredited Specialist by both the Law Society of NSW and the Law Institute of Victoria.
In 2021, FCB was acquired by The Citation Group – a UK based employment law, outsourced HR and WHS business. Since FCB was acquired by The Citation Group, FCB has committed to accelerating its growth across Australia and New Zealand and by the end of 2022, has made two successful acquisitions. FCB acquired QMS Certification Services and Best Practice Certification, both leading providers of assessment and certification services in Australia. This has bolstered FCB’s footprint in the certification space and has meant they are the second largest Certification provider in Australia.
