When did you know FDM Group was the right decision?
Within the first four weeks we were given quite a wide view of what our training was going to be and from the second week I was sent out for interviews. I think it was then when it became clear to me that even though I had eleven more weeks of training, it was the right way to be going.
What is your role within FDM Group’s Consultant Peer Support initiative?
As a Consultant Peer Support at Virgin Money, I help with the on-boarding of new FDMers when they are placed on site. It can be difficult sometimes dealing with relationship managers from both Virgin and FDM side, so it is good to have a single point of contact, especially as a peer, to help you out, on whether is just something simple like how to physically get to work or what to do when you turn up on your first Monday morning.
