What FDM does: FDM Group is the market leader in the Recruit, Train and Deploy sector, launching thousands of careers every year across the globe. Their world-renowned Graduate Program provides training as well as the opportunity to work on-site with their prestigious clients on exciting projects.
Staff Stats: Since their founding in 1991, FDM has grown exponentially, with over 4,500 employees and 90+ nationalities working together across Asia Pacific, EMEA and North America.
The good bits: FDM recruits from all degree backgrounds, but a passion for technology is a must. Graduates will receive award-winning business and technical training before being deployed as tech consultants with FDM’s leading clients across a range of industries including finance, insurance, bookmaking and professional services.
The not so good bits: The training is intense and for some there can be a steep learning curve. The work FDM Consultants do on-site can be challenging and involve the need to perform multiple tasks and projects simultaneously.

Why choose FDM:

FDM will equip you with the skills and confidence you need, as well as invaluable experience working on leading edge projects for some of the biggest names in the business. Their support and development initiatives are catered to help you at every stage of your career journey, from wellbeing to mentoring. In addition to this you will:

  • Gain industry-recognised training and qualifications
  • Undergo key skills development e.g. personal branding, stakeholder management, communication, planning as well as industry specific training
  • Acquire a minimum of two-years commercial experience working with their clients

Their commitment to all forms of diversity enables them to create an innovative and inclusive environment where they recognise and celebrate the achievements of all their people. FDM celebrates difference because they want everyone to have equal opportunity to belong and develop in their career. There are also a number of Employee Networks, a global community for those who identify with and/or are allies of particular groups. FDM welcomes their staff to join, support and engage.

Recruitment process:

To apply to the FDM Graduate Program, candidates must submit an online application through the FDM website. The next stage includes a telephone interview with a Graduate Recruiter. Once successful, candidates will be invited to attend an Assessment Day where they must demonstrate their aptitude, skills and motivations for becoming a successful IT or business consultant, as well as their potential to represent FDM on prestigious client sites.

FDM accepts candidates from all universities and there is no need for any prior experience or a STEM background!

Remuneration:

FDM offers graduates a competitive salary relative to industry standards. As experience and time at FDM increases, there will be further opportunities to reward performance through salary increases. FDM employees can also join the Buy As You Earn scheme.

Career growth:

Once trained, FDM consultants will be placed on-site with one or more of FDM's clients for a minimum of two years. Consultants can then choose to continue their career with FDM and become a senior consultant, transition to a permanent position with the client or explore other opportunities using the connections and experiences gained from their time at FDM.

What Graduates Say About Them
  • Full of opportunities. Supportive staff
  • I gained a lot of technical skills
  • Potential foot in the door of desired company and relocation reimbursement
  • Access to an array of blue-chip financial companies that otherwise would've been too competitive to enter via internal graduate programs
  • The stories that I get day-to-day. I work in a high-pressure environment and I truly believe it brings out the best in me and my colleagues. We all look back and laugh at our decisions
  • We get trained in Software Development principles and languages, including SQL, Bash and Java. We also have the option to learn JavaScript, html and CSS in our own time, which is helpful with the projects
  • We have to go through further rounds of interviews to be placed with a client once training is over

I always knew I wanted a career within the tech space, but I was afraid that I didn't have enough qualifications and training to pursue it. It was my FDM training and own perseverance that allowed me to build that bridge of opportunity to work in the world of technology.
